Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor  of  Appendix: A Rare Case

The most common peak incidence of this tumor as per available literature was in late sixth and early seventh decades of life with male preponderance. In our case, the age of occurrence was in a much younger male of 42 years age, showing a relatively early onset as compared to the reported peak ages in the literature. It has been noted that the most frequent site is the stomach (52%), followed​ ​by​ the ​small​ ​intestine​ (25%), ​large​ ​bowel​ (11%)​ ​and​ o​esophagus​ (5%)​.​
