Workup

Gastric Lesion
  • GLS occurs most frequently as a single lesion and rarely as multiple gastric lesions [3]. We report the occurrence of a multi-centric leiomyosarcoma in a Saudi male and the literature is reviewed briefly.[saudijgastro.com]

Treatment

  • Therefore, wide local excision remains the preferred treatment when technically feasible.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Among these factors, mucosal ulceration has been identified as a new factor associated with poor prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • The rarity of LMS is worldwide and the etiology of these tumors is unknown. Predisposing factors to its development are not well understood. Therefore, its prevention is a major challenge to researchers. 1. Remine WH.[saudijgastro.com]
