Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Otherpeer-review


The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is the most common site of extranodal lymphoma. Primary GI lymphoma is relatively rare and can involve any part of the gut, with the stomach being the most common site. Several lymphoma subtypes have a predilection for involving the GI tract. The most common are extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. However, Burkitt lymphoma, enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, and mantle cell lymphoma are also discussed here due to their propensity for GI involvement.
