Kim and Ahn: Diagnosis of Gastric Subepithelial Tumor: Role of Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine-Needle Biopsy

Quiz

A 59-year-old woman presented with an incidental finding of a gastric subepithelial tumor (SET) (Fig.1A). The tumor appeared round in shape at the fundus of the stomach without ulceration. On endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), the tumor measured 2.4 ×2.3 cm and had a heterogenous hypoechoic appearance in the proper muscle layer (Fig. 1B). EUS-guided fine-needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) was performed for the tumor (Fig. 1C, Fig. 2).
What is the most probable diagnosis?
