Four cases of intramural exogastric lesions studied by ultrasound are presented. In all four patients, a large mass was identified in the left mid- and upper abdomen with a strip of solid tissue extending toward the left hemidiaphragm anteriorly, adjacent to the left lobe of the liver. This finding, best demonstrated on longitudinal scanning, suggested that the mass originated in the stomach rather than in the spleen or splenic flexure of the colon, which are posterior in location. Two of the lesions were leiomyoblastomas and two leiomyosarcomas.
