    Glomus tumor occurs only rarely in the stomach. This benign intramural mass is located most frequently in the distal half of the stomach. We experienced two cases of glomus tumor of the stomach which were examined with helical CT and were confirmed pathologically. Both tumors were well- marginated solitary lesions, located in the gastric antrum. On the early- phase helical CT, an intact overlying mucosa was demonstrated in both cases, and both tumors showed a dense homogeneous contrast enhancement, which persisted to the delayed phase.
