ABSTRACT
Extragastrointestinal stromal tumor is a recently described group of tumors. These tumors are usually present in omentum, mesentery, retroperitoneum, periprostatic and rectovaginal septum. Although histologically they resemble gastrointestinal tumors, extragastrointestinal stromal tumors are considered more aggressive in behavior, have worse prognosis and over-all survival. There are no definite guidelines for stratification and treatment of these rare tumors.

Keywords: Extragastrointestinal tumor, Gastrointestinal tumor, Immunohistochemical studies
