  • Look Inside

 A case of gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma showing the feature of multiple minute hollow spots at the lesser curvature of the gastric body is reported. The patient was a 35-year-old female with the chief complaint of epigastric discomfort. The endoscopic examination of the stomach revealed a lot of reddish and minute hollow spots on the vertical folds at the lesser curvature of the lower body. Histological diagnosis of the biopsy specimen from the area of a minute hollow spot was MALT lymphoma.

 Radiographic examination also recognized minute barium flecks corresponding with the endoscopic findings.

 Histopathological examination of the resected specimen recognized diffuse infiltration of lymphoma cells from the deep part of the mucosa to the submucosa at the lesser curvature of the upper to lower body, and a small depressed change at the surface epithelium was noted.
