Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumours of the digestive tract. The stomach and small bowel are the most common primary locations of GIST. Three to 5% of GISTs are located in the duodenum and are associated with an increased risk of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding as a primary manifestation.Complete surgical resection with clear margins is thought to be the treatment of choice for GISTs. Due to technical complexity in obtaining wide surgical margins with duodenal GIST, present surgical options are not clear. Some authors support the selective use of limited resection, and others prefer pancreaticoduodenectomy. Surgical techniques depend on tumour location in the duodenum, size, and relation to surrounding structures.Herein, we present a case of a man who presented with a bleeding duodenal GIST and underwent a successful laparoscopic resection.......
