Marginal zone lymphomas (MZLs) are rarely associated with amyloid deposits, calcification, and ossification. Herein, we describe a case of a MZL with a primary nodal mesenteric presentation, associated with amyloid deposits, calcification, and ossification, highlighting its clinicopathological features, based on our findings, but also on a brief review of the literature.
