BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to present our experience concerning a rare form of gastric tumor--gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). METHODOLOGY We reviewed data of four patients with gastric stromal tumors, which have been admitted in our department from 1998-2002. RESULTS There were two females and two males with age of 75, 70, 65 and 63(More)

METHODOLOGY We have retrospectively reviewed data of 146 patients admitted for acute pancreatitis between 1999(More)
We present a series of eight consecutive patients evaluated in our department from 2002 to 2007 with giant lipomatous tumors (as defined in medical studies as greater than 5 cm) of upper extremities. There were three male and five female, ranged in age from 17 to 77 years (mean age of 55). The tumor's size ranged from 5 to 34 cm. All patients underwent(More)
