Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) occurs in esophagus, stomach, bile duct, salivary gland, lung, uterus, skin, and so on. The incidence of gastric LELC is 1∼4 percents of all stomach cancers. Gastric LELC has a lymphoid stroma and shows a good prognosis and high association with Epstein-Barr virus. We experienced a case of patient with gastric LELC. The patient was 49- year-old woman. and the endoscopic finding showed a submucosal tumor with central erosion. The histologic findings of endoscopic biopsies were suggestive of low grade MALT lymphoma. but the histologic findings of the surgical specimen were consistent with gastric LELC. We report a case of gastric LELC presenting as a submucosal tumor, with a brief review of the literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2004;28:123⁣126)
