An 83-year-old woman was hospitalized with abdominal discomfort. Abdominal computed tomography(CT)revealed a hugetumor (size, 15 cm)in thegastric body. Based on thefindings of endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration, she was diagnosed with gastrointestinal stromal tumor(GIST). Invasion of thesurrounding viscera and distant metastasis were not observed; however, owing to the tumor size(>10 cm), we initiated neoadjuvant chemotherapy with imatinib. CT performed a month after chemotherapy revealed tumor shrinkage, and CT repeated 6 months after the second CT revealed tumor shrinkage to 8 cm. The patient showed a partial response to chemotherapy. She was deemed suitable to undergo laparoscopic radical resection and subsequently underwent laparoscopic partial gastric resection. Histopathological examination of the resected specimen(measuring 10 cm)revealed hyaline degeneration in most tumor cells and positive ckit expression in only some proportion of tumor cells. Based on histopathological evaluation, the tumor was diagnosed as Grade 2b. The patient showed an uneventful postoperative course. After discharge, she received imatinib as adjuvant chemotherapy and is progressing well without recurrence. Taken together, we reported the case of a huge gastric GIST in a patient who showed significant tumor shrinkage following preoperative neoadjuvant chemotherapy and successfully underwent laparoscopic radical resection.
