Schwannomas, also known as neurinomas, are generally benign, slow-growing neoplasms representing 0.2% of all gastric tumors. This is the case of a 48-year-old patient presenting with epigastralgias. A 4cm lesion is found as evidenced by the CT-scan. Gastroscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography did not show any mucosal lesion. This video shows a laparoscopic sleeve-like gastrectomy of this benign tumor.
