More rarely neoplasms with histology and immunohistochemistry similar to gastrointestinal stromal tumors may ocur outside the gastrointestinal tract and are
so-called Extra-gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (EGISTs). Surgical removal is the gold standard treatment for non-metastatic Extragastrointestinal stromal tumors. We reported a very rare case of ekstragastrointestinal stromal tumor arising from the vulva in this article.
