Two cases of leiomyoblastoma of the stomach are reported. Endoscopic features, ie. submucosal mass with umbilication and apical ulceration, presence of normal peristalsis, and absence of stenosis or irregularity, help differentiate this tumor from carcinoma of the stomach. Case histories are presented and pathologic features are described. On cut sections a multilobulated mass with areas of cystic degeneration, hemorrhage, and necrosis is seen. Microscopically, the cells are rounded or polygonal with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and a characteristic perinuclear clear spaces.
