  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 62-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of upper abdomial pain. The gastro-endoscopic picture demonstrated reddish erosions at the antrum and diffuse granular mucosa at the greater curvature of the angular region. Histopathological examination by biopsy and strip biopsy revealed the findings of gastric MALT lymphoma. At the same time, the biopsy specimen and rapid urease test were positive for Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori). After eradication of H.pylori, the gastric lymphoma regressed. Three years after eradication, lymphoma has regressed continuously and has been also negative for H.pylori.
