Author(s): Dr. Dharmendra K Shah, Dr. Shivani Chaudhary and Dr. Nritya Trivedi

Abstract: Gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) is a common mesenchymal tumour. Often GIST is associated with intraluminal gastrointestinal bleeding but rarely undergoes rupture causing spontaneous hemoperitoneum. This case report talks about spontaneous hemoperitoneum being the initial presentation of a GIST and emphasizes that a high index of suspicion and prompt diagnosis could prevent its deadly complications. In our case, radiological investigations and later, excision revealed it to be of a diameter of 16cm; though interestingly, producing only mild abdominal discomfort in the patient till it underwent a sudden rupture.
