Aim We aim to discuss cases with gastrointestinal stromal tumor and leiomatosis peritoneal dissemeniata LPD regarding their diagnosis and surgical management with pitfalls related. We also aim to focus on management of multiple nodular serosal lesions. Method Two cases are presented. Both were diagnosed as advanced ovarian cancer on CT and ultrasound imaging by multiple nodular peritoneal lesions, omental cake and adnexal masses. Tumor markers were normal in both cases. Both were scheduled for exploratory laparotomy. One patient diagnosed with neuroﬁbromatosis type I. Results Midline laparotomy was done for one case revealing normal adnexa with multiple ﬁbroid uterus, peritoneal solid masses with large mesenteric and omental masses related to the small intestine. Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo- oophorectomy, total omentectomy and resection anastomosis for the small intestine with removal of macroscopic lesions were done. Midline line laparotomy was done for the second case revealing free adnexa with subserous vascular ﬁbroids and omental ﬁbroid solid masses. Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and total omentectomy and removal of macroscopic peritoneal lesions seen were done. The second case was diagnosed as Disseminated Peritoneal Leiomyomatosis, and the other case was diagnosed with multiple uterine ﬁbroid and metastatic GIST on histopathology. Conclusion Disseminated Peritoneal
