Abstract

Glomus tumors of the stomach are rare and hard to be diagnosed and guideline of this disease still need to be established. In this case, we suggest that to diagnose the disease before the operation, the clinician should conduct immunohistochemical staining to identify molecules such as CK when a glomus tumor cannot be ruled out. This may allow doctors to avoid surgery.
