Abstract

AIM: The majority of lesions originating from muscularis propria of stomach, duodenum, and colon are gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). Surgery is indicated when endosonographic criteria of malignancy are met, but little is known about the natural history of lesions with benign endosonographic features. Aim of this study was to evaluate the natural course of benign-appearing lesions originating from muscularis propria in organs where GISTs significantly overcome leiomyomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 49 asymptomatic patients with hypoechoic lesions originating from the fourth layer of the gastrointestinal tract entered a follow-up program by means of endoscopic ultrasonography. All lesions were nonulcerated,
