H.Taner Bulut*, Cengiz Ara**, Mehmet Yılmaz**.
Schwannomas are rare tumours of the digestive tract that arise from the Schwann cells of the gastrointestinal neural
plexus. Upper endoscopy is not always helpful in these exophytically growing submucosal tumors. Cross-sectional
imaging may be usefull adjunct in the detection and characterization of these tumor types. Computed tomographic
features of a 56 yrs old male case with gastric schwannoma were reported.
