Background: Gastric adenocarcinoma is an extremely rare tumor with a poor prognosis in childhood. Patients are usually diagnosed late, as they present with non–specific symptoms and therefore, patients have low survival rates after diagnosis.
Case Report: Here, we present two cases of gastric adenocarcinoma, one with dysphagia and weight loss, and the other with abdominal pain, leg pain, and weight loss as the presenting complaints with literature review.
Conclusion: Gastric adenocarcinoma patients can be presented with non–specific symptoms such as dysphagia, weight loss, and leg pain.

Keywords: Gastric adenocarcinoma, pediatric, weight loss.
