Background: Digestive tract stromal tumors are uncommon and are the second most common non epithelial digestive cancer, after gastric lymphoma. Their behavior is unpredictable and depends on the size of the tumor and its number of mitoses. Aim: To report our experience with gastric stromal tumors. Patients and Methods: Retrospective review of medical records of 13 patients operated for gastric stromal tumors (aged 63 ± 15 years. six women). The condition of the patients was revised after a mean of 54 months of follow up. Results: Eight patients consulted for upper gastrointestinal bleeding. A stromal tumor was suspected in five patients during endoscopy. A wedge gastric resection was performed in nine patients (one was done by laparoscopy), a total gastrectomy in two and subtotal gastrectomy in two. The pathological study showed a benign tumor in seven patients and a malignant tumor in six. Mean survival after 54 months of follow up was 92%. Conclusions: In this group of patients with gastric stromal tumors, the surgical treatment performed allowed a good control of the disease
