The term "GIST" was first used in 1983 (by Mazur and Clark), the 1998 discovery by Hirota that GIST tumors can contain mutations in the c-kit gene marked the beginning of a new understanding and reclassification of sarcomas of the GI tract. Prior to the year 2000, GISTs were previously classified as one of many types of soft tissue sarcoma (STS) including tumors of smooth-muscle origin (most commonly leiomyosarcoma, and also leiomyoma or leiomyoblastoma) and of neural-crest origin.
