Overview

Gatrointestinal tract is the most commonly affected site of extranodal non‑Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL) accounting for approximately 40% of all extranodal primary NHL. Almost a half of them are indolent lymphomas, mainly MALT lymphoma. From agressive forms is the most frequent difuse large cell B‑lymphoma (DLCBL). In this review, principles of diagnostic and treatment of gastrointestinal lymphomas are presented.

Key words:
malignant lymphoma – extranodal forms – Helicobacter pylori – MALT
