A 70-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with acute abdominal pain. Abdominal CT showed a 6-cm-sized tumor near the third portion of the duodenum, and a duodenal GIST was suspected. Although the abdominal pain was intense and the tumor was suspected to be ruptured, the vital signs were stable; therefore, we initially planned to perform an elective surgery. However, because the pain could not be controlled, the surgery was performed on the 6th day of hospitalization. Pathological findings showed that the resected specimen was a desmoid tumor and the surgical margins were negative. The postoperative course 1 year after surgery was favorable, and no tumor recurrence occurred.
