The article presents information on the presence of mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas in the stomach and its treatment. A low grade gastric MALT lymphoma appears as a diffuse spread of neoplastic cells from the marginal zone of lymphoid follicles. Histological diagnosis can be very difficult if lymphoid follicles are surrounded by diffusely infiltrating small lymphocytes. Approximately 60% of gastric lymphomas are high grade and are termed as diffuse large B cell lymphomas. Effective H pylon treatment can be very effective in achieving an early response. H pylon treatment is recommended in order to avoid the emergence of antibiotic resistant strains which can be hard to eradicate.

    Although a number of studies have recognized that follicular lymphomas may be accompanied by a prominent proliferation of monocytoid B-cells, the clonal relationship between these components has not been adequately assessed. Using laser capture microdissection, we isolated the follicular and...

    In recent years, endoscopic ultrasound techniques with Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) have become an increasingly used diagnostic aid in the differentiation of mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and endoesophageal ultrasound (EUS) are now available for clinicians to reach...
