Glomus tumours of the stomach are rare mesenchymal neoplasms. Since patients have no specific clinical and radiological findings, the differential diagnosis with other gastric submucosal tumours can be difficult. Histologic and immunohistochemical findings help distinguishing different tumours. Although usually benign, a malignant behaviour cannot be excluded. The treatment of choice is wide surgical resection with negative margins, and the laparoscopic approach is a safe and effective option. We report the case of a patient presenting with a symptomatic lesion originating in the anterior gastric wall who underwent successful laparoscopic wedge resection.
