The case description is adequate. The report is supported with briefly explained figure. Due to the very few reported cases of malignant gastric glomus tumor, the criteria for malignancy of this tumor have been relatively undefined. The Discussion explains the challenges in treating the patient in the present case clearly. It also offers useful suggestions with respect to the treatment regimen. The report Discusses that the tumor size, along with presence of lymphovascular invasion and a metastatic lesion in the liver, is consistent with a malignant gastric glomus tumor. The study aptly recommends long term follow up due to the potential these tumors have for malignancy.

Further comments on the paper

Comments: This case report and review of the literature presents the case of a 35-year-old African-American female presenting with anemia of unknown origin, diagnosed with a malignant gastric glomus tumor with metastasis to the liver. This report holds significance as there are limited reports of malignant glomus tumors in the literature and even less cases reported involving metastasis. The rarity of these tumors is the reason behind the data on glomus tumors of the viscera being limited.
