Abstract Laparoscopic intragastric resection of gastric leiomyoma was performed using needlescopic instruments. The patient was a 71-year-old man who had a 2-year history of gastric submucosal tumor 2 cm in diameter located near the esophagocardiac junction. After getting informed consent, we performed a laparoscopic intragastric tumor resection under an oral endoscope. There were no intra- or postoperative complications. The patient was discharged uneventfully. Histopathologic diagnosis of the tumor was leiomyoma. Laparoscopic intragastric resection of a benign gastric submucosal tumor using needlescopic instruments is technically feasible and as safe as a less invasive procedure.
