Gastrointestinal tumors are the most common of a rare group of cancers known as mesenchymal tumors. New advances over the last several years have lead to the availability of targeted therapies in cancer and greater survival, particularly in this cancer type. This paper is a review of the current practices and treatments now utilized in the management of gastrointestinal tumors. Special emphasis was placed on treatment in Neoadjuvant and adjuvant settings. Research was conducted by inputting the words “GIST” “neoadjuvant”, and “adjuvant” into the Cochran, Pubmed, and Ovid Database up to December 2013.
