Gastric T-cell lymphoma

Discussion:

The patient underwent an endoscopic biopsy and the pathologists reported T-cell lymphoma (as communicated by the patient's physician).

When a patient has an enlarged lumen of the stomach or bowel and associated diffuse wall thickening, a lymphoma should always be on the top of our differential diagnosis.

Although primary gastric lymphoma is rare and is usually seen after the fifth decade of life, it can also occur in the second decade and is more common in males1.
