pylori in the gastric mucosa is associated with chronic active gastritis, which may lead to the development of peptic ulcer, gastric carcinoma and even gastric lymphoma
The PFS and OS rates of patients with primary gastric lymphoma
were significantly higher than those of patients with primary intestinal lymphoma (P0.
pylori colonization is associated with peptic ulcers, gastric adenocarcinoma, and gastric lymphoma
(aka maltoma), there is evidence that it also is an "ancient dominion organism.
Figure 1, 2 show the EUS features of gastric lymphoma
and adenocarcinoma, respectively.
6 All cases of malignant lymphoma were primary gastric lymphoma
, as the patients did not have disseminated disease at the time of presentation, and no generalised lymphadenopathy.
pylori has been established in chronic antral gastritis, duodenal ulcers, chronic gastric ulcers, dyspepsia, gastric cancer and gastric lymphoma
This infection is also associated with peptic ulcer, adenocarcinoma and gastric lymphoma
Pathological gastric perforations caused by gastric lymphoma
and metastatic melanoma or lung cancer were not included in this study.
pylori infections and their close link with gastric cancer, gastric lymphoma
, duodenal and gastric ulceration, give impetus to the H.
Primary gastric lymphoma
is confined to the stomach and regional lymph nodes.
1) In addition, there are case reports which indicate that FMF can occur alongside gastric lymphoma
, bronchoalveolar carcinoma, malignant peritoneal mesothelioma, and carcinoid tumors of the small intestine, (2) no connection has been established between colon cancer and FMF.
A strong association has been established between colonization of the gastric mucosa by H pylori and various benign and malignant gastroduodenal diseases, including chronic active gastritis, gastric ulceration, duodenal ulcer, gastric adenocarcinoma, and gastric lymphoma
of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT).
