Lymphomas involving the gastrointestinal tract comprise a heterogeneous group of uncommon neoplasms that are often a challenge to the skills of both clinician and pathologist. Among 23 000 new cases of lymphoma projected for 1980 in the United States, fewer than 1200 new cases of primary gastrointestinal lymphomas can be expected [1,2]. However, there is a much larger group of cases with secondary gastrointestinal involvement from both Hodg-kin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas.
