The paper describes a very rare case of obstructing antral neurinoma with associated gastric volvulus. Pathogenetic mechanism of this association, which has never been reported in the literature, is discussed. The authors also focus their attention on the diagnostic difficulties and the choice of therapy. A hiatoplasty and a Billroth II gastrectomy were performed in the described case.
