Dr. Rajeev Sen, Dr. Sonia Singh, Dr. Padam Parmar, Dr.Vinod Kumar, Dr.Ashish Sharma, Dr.Suman Tomar.

Primary gastro intestinal (GI) tract lymphomas are rare malignant disorder accounting for only 1-4% of all GI malignancies. Most commonly this lymphoma is usually of B-cell origin but few cases of peripheral T-cell lymphomas of the intestine have been reported in literature. GI tract is the most common extra-nodal site for the development of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Large bowel (colon and rectum) are uncommonly involved as compared with the stomach and small bowel. Here we reported a case of primary intestinal Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of small bowel (jejunum).

Key words: B-cell lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, small bowel, T- cell lymphoma
