Abstract

This case report is about synchronous development of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) with AV
malformations (AVMs). A 23-year-old pale woman presented with melana and anemia. Abdominal computed
tomography Non Enhanced Contrast (CT-NEC) revealed a gut wall thickness in left hypochondrium and
multiple focal calcifications. Contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) revealed non-homogenous
enhancement with circumferential gut wall thickening and narrowing lumen plus AV malformations in the
gut wall giving impression of mass in the jejunum with AV malformation. An exploratory laprotomy was
performed. The resected jejunum showed a protruding solid mass. The mass was confirmed to be a spindle
cell type GIST and was intermingled with the AVM. To our knowledge, this is the second case of an AVM
associated with a GIST. First case was reported in 2008 by Shim SH et al 1.
