Abstract Text

Primary gastrointestinal lymphoma is the most common type of extra-nodal lymphoma, representing about 30-50% of all extra-nodal involvement. The stomach is the most common site, with the colon and rectum accounting for a minority of occurrences. Primary colorectal lymphoma is uncommon, representing only 0.3% of all large intestinal malignancies and approximately 3% of GI lymphomas with the majority of these being B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) being the most common subtype. We present a case of an 85-year-old male who presented with symptoms suggestive of bowel obstruction, who after further evaluation was diagnosed with primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the colon, DLBCL subtype.
