Abstract Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are rare in children. A 7-year-old boy presented acutely with a severe upper gastrointestinal bleed and was found following angiography to have such a tumour in the duodenum, which was resected at laparotomy. The presence of CD 117 positive immunostaining was a confirmatory diagnostic marker. The prognosis and underlying molecular biology of the tumour is discussed. Understanding of the molecular pathogenesis has given rise to promising new therapies. This article was published in Pediatr Surg Int and referenced in Journal of Cytology & Histology
