We report the case of a 74-year-old woman with primary hyperparathyroidism who underwent 99m-technetium-sestamibi single photon emission computed tomography-computed tomography for preoperative localization of parathyroid adenoma. Unexpected focal sestamibi uptake was observed at a 5 cm submucosal tumor arising from the greater curve of the stomach. The patient underwent partial gastrectomy and the histological and immunohistochemical findings were consistent with the diagnosis of gastric schwannoma.
