Esophageal leiomyomas are rare tumors. They may be symptomatic or an incidental finding. Leiomyomas of gastroesophageal junction may mimic Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). Surgical excision followed by histological analysis gives the final diagnosis. We present a case of incidental esophageal leiomyoma which was diagnosed as GIST on imaging done for cholecystitis. A brief case report with review of literature is presented.
Keywords: Case report, incidental, gastroesophageal junction, leiomyoma.
