Gastric neuroendocrine tumor (GNET) usually presents with nonspecific symptoms such as dyspepsia, nausea, and epigastric pain. They are usually diagnosed on histological evaluation of gastric polyps. Gastrointestinal bleed may be seen in large ulcerated polyps. However, massive gastrointestinal bleed leading to hematemesis is uncommon in GNETs. We describe a case of 55 years gentleman who was referred for massive hematemesis. On evaluation he was found to have a large ulcerated bleeding GNET. Laparoscopic resection of GNET was done.
