GISTs are rare intra abdominal tumors arising from mesenchymal stromal cells of gastro intestinal tract. EGIST's are mesenchymal tumors that originate outside the GI tract and tend to have similar characteristics. To the best of our knowledge, few cases of long standing EGIST have been reported. We present a case with rare histological features of EGIST in the mesentery of a 55 years old female patient.
