Elastofibroma is a peculiar tumor-like lesion which manifests as a slowly growing, solid, ill-defined mass of fibroelastic tissue occurring almost exclusively in elderly persons. It has been found in the ,,ubscapular region but rare examples have also been found in other locations. We experienced a case of elastofibromatous lesion of the stomach. The lesion was incidentally found in a 71 -year-old woman during an operation of cholecystectomy due to chronic cholecystitis and choledocholithiasis. The lesion was a relatively well-defined but not encapsulated small nodule, 0.7 cm in diameter, at submucosal layer of gastric pylorus. Histologically the nodular mass consisted of abundant acellular collagen fibers containing numerous elastofibroma fibers.
