Imatinib is the only effective and approved systemic therapy for the treatment of patients with advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs). Although metastases from GISTs most commonly involve the liver, yielding hyperbilirubinaemia, very few data on imatinib administration in subjects with jaundice are available. We provide evidence that imatinib tolerability was not adversely affected by jaundice in two patients with advanced GIST.
