Abstract

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare in occurrence, but comprise the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract and affect between 15 and 20 individuals per million per year. Due to recent advancements in molecular classification of these tumors, medical therapy has provided improved outcomes to a historically surgically managed disease. This review article briefly discusses the molecular characteristics, medical and surgical therapies, and future of GIST management.
