Abstract

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma often involves the gastrointestinal tract, but primary lymphoma of the colon is rare. Primary lymphoma of the colon masquerading as inflammatory bowel disease is even rarer. We report a patient with an initial diagnosis of Crohn’s colitis, who later appeared to have had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the colon. We review the diagnosis and treatment of this rare disease.
