The article discusses the nature and cause of multiple lymphomatous polyposis. The disease involves the presence of polyposis throughout the gastrointestinal tract. It results from subepithelial aggregations of lymphoma cells. Identification of the disease is considered crucial as it often necessitates an aggressive chemotherapy regimen.
