Abstract:

We report the case of a 76-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain caused by a gastric tumor. The stomach was resected and found to have developed an elastofibroma. The lesion was yellowish, unencapsulated, and characterized histologically by abundant collagen fibers mixed with numerous elastic serrated fibers. Elastofibromatous change of the gastrointestinal tract is a rare event.
