Complete healing of ulceration within a gastric leiomyoma.
A case of an ulcerated, bleeding gastric leiomyoma is presented in which a follow-up UGI examination showed no evidence of residual ulceration within the tumor. Radiologists should be aware that it is occasionally possible to document complete healing of ulceration within a gastric leiomyoma and that conservative medical management may be an alternative when surgical resection cannot be performed.
