By Margaret von Mehren, Carolina Cauchi, Jian Q. Yu, Monica Davey, Kristin Edwards, Jonathan C. Trent and Massimo Lopez


Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. They commonly metastasize within the abdominal cavity, particularly to the liver. Less commonly, metastases can be found in the lung or bone. This report describes the first two cases of metastasis to the left ventricle in patients with advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumor
