Abstract

We report here a 65-year old man with primary duodenal malignant lymphoma combined with gastric lymphoma and early gastric cancer. Malignant lymphoma in the bulbus of the duodenum was suspected of by endoscopic biopsy during follow up of duodenal ulcer. Preoperative examination revealed an extension of malignant lymphoma from the bulbus to the stomach in combination with early gastric cancer. We performed a pancreaticoduodenectomy because the tumor invaded to the second portion of the duodenum. The postoperative course was uneventful and he received adjuvant chemotherapy following surgery. To our knowledge, this case is the first report of primary duodenal malignant lymphoma combined with gastric lymphoma and early gastric cancer.
