Rhabdoid tumor is a distinct entity reported in renal and extrarenal sites. There have been very rare reported cases in the stomach, all of which have shown an aggressive clinical course. Herein, we report a primary gastric neoplasm in an old man who presented with profuse intractable GI bleeding and undergone emergency surgery. Resected specimen showed primary malignant rhabdoid tumor. The patient died 24 h after surgery with no additional therapy. Our case emphasizes on this very rare subtype of gastric tumor, with extremely aggressive behavior.
