We herein report the case of a 51-year-old male with a submucosal tumor of the stomach which was histopathologically demonstrated to have features compatible with leiomyoblastoma. As the submucosal tumor of the posterior wall of the antrum, which was initially found in the upper gastrointestinal series done during a health examination, had grown 3.8cm in diameter, the partial resection of the full thickness of the gastric wall containing the tumor with a sufficient tumor margin was performed.
