    ABSTRACT: Diffuse peritoneal and omental seeding are well-known forms of dissemination of metastatic carcinoma. A wide variety of primary neoplasms may cause peritoneal and omental carcinomatosis, most commonly carcinomas of the ovary, gastrointestinal tract and breast. Extensive involvement of the peritoneal cavity with lymphoma is, however, rare. The association of peritoneal lymphoma with a raised CA 125, a tumour marker which is commonly raised in ovarian carcinoma, is a highly challenging clinical situation, which to our knowledge has not been published before in the medical literature. Not being aware of the possibility of this unusual combination of clinical, laboratory and imaging findings can lead to an erroneous diagnosis, as in our case.

    ABSTRACT: Here we report an unusual case of T-cell lymphoma presenting as ascites. A 49-yr-old woman was admitted to the hospital for abdominal discomfort associated with increasing abdominal girth over the course of 3 mo. She also complained of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. On physical examination, a tense and distended abdomen and edema of the lower extremities were noted. Neither hepatosplenomegaly nor lymphadenopathy was found. A CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis showed a large abdominal/pelvic mass surrounding the small bowel and omentum and small nodes in the para-aortic and mesenteric regions. The cytospin prepared from the peritoneal fluid was hypercellular and composed of a population of monotonous, noncohesive cells with a high nuclear/cytoplasmic ratio and a single prominent central nucleolus. The cells were positive for leukocyte common antigen and Leu-22 (CD43) but negative for keratin, L26, UCHL-1, kappa, lambda, CD3, Ki-1 (CD30), S-100, and carcinoembryonic antigen. Morphologic and immunologic findings were suggestive of T-cell immunoblastic lymphoma. Peripheral T-cell lymphomas rarely present as ascites; this case demonstrates the value of effusion cytology in making this diagnosis.

    ABSTRACT: With the advent of computed tomography, lymphomatous involvement of sites other than lymph nodes is being seen with increasing frequency. Review of computed tomographic scans in 400 patients with newly diagnosed or recurrent non-Hodgkin lymphoma revealed 37 patients to have involvement of 56 unusual sites below the diaphragm: psoas/iliacus muscle (16 patients), kidney (13 patients), pancreas (5 patients), adrenal (4 patients), skin/subcutaneous tissue (4 patients), abdominal wall musculature (4 patients), peritoneum (4 patients), omentum (3 patients), and female reproductive tract (3 patients). These were mostly seen in patients with lymphomas of diffuse architecture, especially diffuse histiocytic lymphoma. Concomitant retroperitoneal and/or mesenteric adenopathy was very common; extranodal involvement was rarely the only site of initial or recurrent lymphoma.
