We report a case of metastatic gastrointestinal stromal sarcoma (GISS) in a 33-year-old man who subsequently underwent successful palliative endoscopically-placed enteral stenting for duodenal stenosis secondary to extrinsic compression. Enteral stenting for palliative relief of malignant gastrointestinal obstruction is recommended for its safety, efficacy and cost-effectiveness.
