Abstract
Gastric neurofibroma associated with von Reklinghausen's disease is a rare clinical entity. We report a case of gastric neurofibroma with gastrointestinal bleeding and severe anaemia. Surgical resection is the treatment of choice. The recommended follow-up is an annual complete cell blood count and stool testing for occult blood.
