Abstract

Multiple primary gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are an infrequent finding. Benign and malignant tumors could coexist in the same patient. We discuss one case of a benign jejunal GIST and a malignant ileal GIST coexisting in the same patient and present their radiological characteristics.
