Long history of symptoms and heterogeneous clinical presentation sometimes delays diagnosis. Children have been reported to have a better prognosis than adults in some series.The main emphasis of this study was to determine differences between children and adults and to investigate prognostic factors regarding cancer specific survi...

ConclusionsThe nomograms were able to more accurately predict 3- and 5-year OS and CSS of patients with GISTs than were existing models.
