Therapy of gastric lymphoma of MALT type, including antibiotics

  • P. Koch
  • W. Hiddemann


This chapter addresses the systemic therapy of marginal B cell lymphoma, a category which comprises MALT-type lymphomas and monocytoid B cell lymphomas [20. 1]. These two different subtypes are approximately equal in frequency,1 but this chapter restricts its scope to lymphomas of the stomach.
