Primary esophageal T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
ABSTRACT Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the esophagus is a rare disease. We report a 52-year-old man who had a polypoid mass in the esophagus at endoscopy. Histology was suggestive of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; immunohistochemistry was positive for CD3, CD45 RO, LCA. He was treated with 6 cycles of CHOP and is disease-free 14 months later.

ABSTRACT: Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the esophagus is a rare disease. A case of primary isolated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the esophagus in a 77-year-old man without acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is presented. We describe the clinical features and the imaging findings (barium swallow, endoscopic ultrasonography and CT) of a biopsy proven B-cell lymphoma with diffuse transmural involvement of the esophagus wall, which was discovered incidentally. We also briefly review the literature.World Journal of Gastroenterology 05/2009; 15(15):1901-3. · 2.43 Impact Factor
