Introduction: Gastric Schwannoma is a very unusual mesenchymal tumor. The prognosis is excellent with and accurate surgery. Case Presentation: A 65-year-old woman with a 6 cm antral gastric submucosal tumor was resected totally by laparoscopic surgery. The biopsy showed a gastric schwannoma. Discussion: The gastric schwannoma is a rare tumor that can simulate other more frequent nonepithelial gastric tumors as GIST. The treatment of this rare disease is the total resection with free margins. Conclusion: Total laparoscopic resection of a gastric schwannoma can be achieved safely, with the benefits of minimally invasive surgery.
