Resumen

OLGUIN R, Roberto et al. Gastric lipoma removed by laparoscopic subtotal gastrectomy: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.7, pp.927-931. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872013000700014.

Gastric lipoma is a rare benign gastric tumor. We report a 62-year-old man, who presented with abdominal pain, vomiting and weight loss. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a gastric antral, submucosal tumor. Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography revealed a large antral lesion with content of high echogenicity and fat density, measuring 11 x 6 cm. The patient was treated with a laparoscopic distal subtotal gastrectomy, and a Roux-en-Y reconstruction. The patient had no postoperative morbidity, was started on a liquid diet on the third postoperative day and was discharged on the third postoperative day. The pathological study revealed a gastric lipoma with clear margins. This laparoscopic procedure represents a good alternative in the treatment of this benign gastric tumor.
