Sonography reveals a large sold lymph node mass lesion with linear dense echogenic echoes seen in the left para aortic region.

Diagnosis

Small bowel lymphoma

Discussion

Lymphoma of the small bowel, colon, and rectum occur, but are less common than gastric lymphoma. Distinct clinicopathologic entities, such as primary intestinal T-cell lymphoma, immunoproliferative small intestinal disease, and multiple lymphomatous polyposis have been described.
Surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy have been used in the treatment of GI lymphomas.
