Xanthogranulomatous inflammation is a rare condition characterized by aggregation of foamy histiocytes, fibrosis and parenchymal destruction. A 53-year-old man presented suffering from dyspepsia. Endosonography revealed a submucosal lesion that was a 2.6 cm-sized hypoechoic mass. We could not differentiate the lesion as a benign or malignant mesenchymal tumor, particularly a gastrointestinal stromal tumor, necessitating a wedge resection. The stomach wall was focally thickened, measuring 1.0 cm in size. No definite mass was grossly evident. Microscopic examination revealed multiple foamy histiocytes and subserosal fibrosis. Xanthogranulomatous inflammation of the gastric wall was diagnosed. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009;39:226-229)
