Bita Sepehri, Shahriar Hashemzadeh, Keivan Kashy Zonouzy, Mehdi Haghi


Lipomas are benign mesenchymal tumors and constitute 5-6% of gastrointestinal tumors. They are generally asymptomatic and the occurrence of symptoms is related to the location and size of tumor. We present a 28 year old man with refractory dyspepsia for 18 months. In upper GI endoscopy multiple smooth submucosal masses with positive pillow sign were detected in second part of duodenum. Diagnosis was confirmed with CT-Scan.
