Lymphosarcoma of the stomach

Summary and conclusions
Far advanced cauliflower carcinoma of the stomach had been diagnosed by roentgen examination of the subject of this case report. The four year duration of the disease without cachexia, the prolonged septic fever, the splenomegaly and the late appearance of occult blood in the stool led to the speculation that a lymphoblastoma might be present. This was confirmed by necropsy.
The occurrence of these clincal features, separately or in combination, should lead to the suspicion of lymphoblastoma of the stomach. Appropriate diagnostic measures including gastroscopy and a trial of X-ray therapy should be instituted as soon as possible in such cases.
