Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare gastrointestinal (GI ) tract tumors. Those tumors rarely arise extra intestinally; within omentum, mesentery, and rarely uterus. The authors report a case of myxoid variant of GIST arising in the ovary with no evidence of a primary tumor in the GI tract. Surgeons as well as gynecologists should bear this possibility in mind when managing pelvic masses.
