Abstract 39 patients with GISTs were included in the study. Four of them have tumors with extra-gastrointestinal localization (retroperitoneal space – in 3 cases and one patient with tumor in the mesentery of the small intestine). The distribution of GISTs in the gastrointestinal tract was established as follows: stomach (21 cases), duodenum (4 cases), small intestine (7 cases) and colon (3 cases). The most common clinical signs were abdominal pain and discomfort, weakness, dyspeptic complaints and gastrointestinal bleeding. 29 patients underwent radical operations with achieved R0 resection. Recurrence was observed in 5 patients. Achieved median, 1-, 3- and 5-year survival was respectively 52,91 months, 88%, 81% and 67%.
