Atypical spindle cell/pleomorphic lipomatous tumor of the stomach: A case report

Academic Article


  • Atypical spindle cell/pleomorphic lipomatous tumor (ASPLT) is a newly accepted entity that belongs to the group of low-grade adipocytic neoplasms. ASPLT commonly manifests a soft tissue mass in both upper and lower extremities but is extremely rare in the gastrointestinal tract. Here we report a case of a gastric ASPLT in a 59-year-old male, who presented for the evaluation of new onset of dysphagia. To our best knowledge, this is the first case report of ASPLT in the upper gastrointestinal tract.
