Case Study
The article describes the case of a 69-year-old man who was presented to the emergency department with syncope. It provides an overview of the patient's medical history. Upon examination, it was revealed that the patient had diffuse thickening of the stomach and CD20 positive and Bcl-2 negative diffuse large B cell lymphoma.

    Precursor B lymphoblastic lymphoma is a high-grade neoplasm arising from precursor lymphocytes of B-cell lineage. Extranodal sites such as the skin and bone are often involved, but gastrointestinal lesions of this disease are rarely encountered. Due to the infrequency, macroscopic forms of the...

    Background: Development and growth of extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphomas (eMZBCLs) of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type are thought to be highly dependent on Helicobacter pylori and autoantigens. Receptors mediating these effects are not characterised so far. Toll-like...
