Esophageal involvement of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas is extremely unusual; primary lymphoma of the esophagus is even less common. This report describes a case of malignant small lymphocytic-plasmacytoid lymphoma with primary esophageal localization. plasmacytoid lic diagnosis was confirmed by histological examination of a large portion of tumoral tissue spontaneously expelled after esophagogastroscopy. Lymph nodes, hone marrow, and other gastrointestinal sites were not involved in the disease. We describe the clinical history of the patient, with the remissions induced by chemotherapy, over a 5-yr observation up to the patient's death, which was not directly related to the tumor.

    The matured T lymphocytes neoplasms originate from posthymic cells and are considered for their study together with those derived from NK cell. They are not frequent in lymph nodes, the most common type is the non specific peripheral T cell (3.7%) followed by the anaplastic T/null large cells...
