This video shows the laparoscopic enucleation of a polylobulated, horseshoe-shaped leiomyoma which embraces the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) circumferentially. This is the case of a 60-year-old patient who underwent endoscopic ultrasonography with fine needle aspiration (FNA). The inmunohistochemical analysis was compatible with leiomyoma and excluded a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). It was subsequently decided to treat this patient by means of enucleation, hence preventing a major gastric resection.
