Aggressive angiomyxoma (AA) is a rare neoplasm of mesenchymal origin. It most commonly occurs in young women, predominantly in the pelvi-perineal region. We describe a case of AA arising from the lesser curvature of the stomach in a young woman who presented with a lump in the abdomen for 6 months. The patient subsequently underwent en bloc resection of the tumour and the diagnosis was confirmed on histology. This is the first reported case of gastric origin of AA to the best of our knowledge.
