Abstract

Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumours of the gastrointestinal tract and account for 1–2% of all gastrointestinal malignancies.1 In terms of metastatic potential, GISTs encompass a continuum of small, mitotically inactive tumours up to larger, active tumours.1 Surgical resection is considered standard of care for localized GISTs.
