MOLINA VILLAVERDE, R et al. Primary intestinal T lymphoma: a report of two cases with a review of the literature. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2002, vol.19, n.9, pp.23-25. ISSN 0212-7199.
Lymphomas of the gastrointestinal tract are the most common type of primary extranodal lymphomas and about 15-20% of these are primary intestinal lymphomas. They may be or B or T-cell. Intestinal T-cell lymphomas are much less common and they can be enteropathy-associated. This disease occurs in adults with abdominal pain often associated with intestinal perforation. The course is aggressive. The major problem is to distinguish this disease from a benign ulcer. Two cases with differents clinical and pathologic features are reported with a review in the literature of this uncommon entity.
