Plexiform Angiomyxoid Myofibroblastic Tumor (PAMT) is a recently identified mesenchymal tumor of the stomach, which was first described in the year 2007 and was added in the 2010 WHO classification of tumors of the digestive system World J Gastroenterol 16(6): 2835-2840, 2010. It closely resembles with other gastric tumors but distinctly varies in clinical management as well as the histopathology. We had a 51year, female patient, laborer by profession with low socio economic status, who had abdominal pain with vomiting since 6months. She had similar complaints 3years ago for which she was evaluated and presumed to have Carcinoma Stomach and underwent laparotomy which ended up only with Gastro- Jejunal anastomosis. She was admitted at our institution. Endoscopy revealed antral bulge with central area ulceration and biopsy was taken which was not confirmatory for malignancy. CT images showed heterogeneous mass with necrotic changes arising from the duodenum favored the diagnosis of perigastric neoplasm. PET CT was done, 8.4 × 5 × 6.1cm exophytic mass in the pyloric region of stomach with solid and cystic components causing significant gastric outlet obstruction. She underwent exploratory laparotomy and complete excision of mass with achievement of R0 clearance. Histopathology was reported as Plexiform angiomyxoid myofibroblastic tumor (PAMT).
