A retrospective review on 22 patients with gastric mesenchymal tumors, who underwent surgical treatment in the period 1974-2003, is presented. The aim of the study was to review our cases in the light of the new pathologic and immunohistochemical definitions and to analyse the value of clinical signs, diagnostic methods and principles of surgical technique. The Authors conclude that no specific clinical signs have been detected. Endoscopy plays a very important diagnostic role and CT-scan is the most sensible technique in the evaluation of location, size, invasion of adjacent organs and metastasis. The aim of treatment must be the complete resection of the tumor and the prognostic prediction on the basis of histologic findings is quite difficult.
