Background: Lipomas are common harmless tumors that are created in the colon in the gastrointestinal tract. The aim of this study was to report a case study on gastrointestinal lipoma with GIB.
Case Presentation: A 38-year-old man was admitted to the hospital because of gastrointestinal bleeding for two months in December 2017. He had abdominal pain, dyspeptic disorders, vomiting, melena, and intermittent hematemesis without significant weight loss. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy indicated a large subepithelial lesion in the antrum of the stomach with near-normal mucosa. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) showed a large well-defined heterogeneous mass-like lesion in the antrum of the stomach. A subtotal gastrectomy was done in the patient. The histology results of the separated samples presented a gastric lipoma.
Conclusion: Gastric lipoma is often yellowish. It might ulcerate and bleed, but it does so, only rarely. It most frequently occurs as a solitary and smooth mass in the gastric antrum.
Keywords: Benign, Gastric lipoma, Hematemesis, Submucosal tumors
