Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of gastrointestinal tract, although it comprises only 0.1-3% of all gastrointestinal neoplasms. The majority of the neuroendocrine tumors of small intestine occur in adults and most of them are located in ileum followed by jejunum and duodenum. We present a case of synchronous GIST of jejunum and neuroendocrine tumor of duodenum in an elderly adult male patient without any associated syndrome. Although a Synchronous occurrence of gastrointestinal tumors without any coexisting syndromes is rare, a complete workup should be done to rule it out in any gastrointestinal tumors. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case to be reported in literature.
