It is very important to be aware of occurrence and distinctive histologic features of gastric glomus tumor because its clinical presentation and endoscopic ficdings are indistinguishable from other gastric tumors. A 58-year-old man was admitted because of intermittent epigastric pain and indigestion for 2 months. Physical examination and laboratory findings revealed within normal limits. Upper gastroendoscopy demonstrated a submucosal mass near the antrum with central mucosal depressionand peripheral multiple erosions. Endoscopic ultrasonography revealed a circumscribed mass that continued to the third and fourth layers which demonstrated a heterogeneous low echo pattern mixed with internal high echo spots. Histologically, the tumor cells have uniform small nuclei with inconspicuous nucleoli. Immunochemical analysis on the tumor cells expressed alpha 1 smooth muscle actin and the tumor cells are enveloped by reticulin fiber, individually or grouped. A case of glomus tumor of the stomach is herein reported with a review of literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2000;21:559-562)
