Esophageal involvement by lymphoma in three patients, two with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and one with Hodgkin's lymphoma are reported. In all three patients, there was discrete involvement of the esophagus not directly contiguous with the stomach. Esophageal involvement by lymphoma either as a primary disease or as manifestation of a disseminated disease is distinctly uncommon.

    Non Hodgkin's lymphomas are a diverse group of cancer which arises from lymphocytes. NHL of colon is rare and consequently extranodal lymphomas are poorly studied. The gastrointestinal tract is the predominant site of extranodal NHL. It accounts for about one third of all the primary extranodal NHL.
