Background: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are uncommon, with those arising within the duct gland even a lot of thus. Be- cause Gastrointestinal stroma tumors involving the duct gland could gift nonspecifically as associate degree higher gastrointes- tinal bleed, it’s necessary to adequately workout the patient to rule out malignancy to optimize the result for the patient. whereas surgery with complete surgery of the neoplasm is that the treatment of alternative, it’s necessary to contemplate the role of neoplasm markers in targeted medical care for a nonresectable illness or nonsurgical patients. Case presentation: We have a tendency to describe a 53- year previous man with a history of neurofibromas and irritable viscus syndrome WHO bestowed with abdominal pain and chronic iron deficiency anemia. He was found to own associate degree extragastrointestinal stromal neoplasm of the duct gland, that stained positive for CD117 and DOG1. The treatment arrange for this patient is targeted medical care with Imatinib, a aminoalkanoic acid enzyme matter effective within the treatment of CD117+ cancer cells, followed by doable surgical surgery. Conclusions: The exocrine gland extragastrointestinal stromal neoplasm could be a rare malignancy which will gift with acute, nonspecific findings of a channel bleed together with anemia, fatigue, and melanotic viscus movements. With ade- quate history and physical examination, we will fitly workout a patient with this rare illness associate degreed develop an acceptable treatment arrange for the patient.
