BACKGROUND: Multiple lymphomatous polyposis of the gastrointestinal tract can be associated with the B-cell lymphoma variant, mantle cell lymphoma, with most cases having been described in patients who are more than 50 years-of-age. A rare case of multiple lymphomatous polyposis due to mantle cell lymphoma is reported in a 34-year-old man.
CASE REPORT: A 34-year-old man presented with paroxysmal abdominal pain followed by spontaneous remission, which had been previously diagnosed as gastritis. An episode of ileocecal intussusception occurred, which was confirmed on imaging studies. The diagnosis of multiple lymphomatous polyposis due to mantle cell lymphoma was confirmed following ileocecal resection and histopathology. The patient refused to receive chemotherapy following surgery. Currently, at two-year follow-up, no further abnormality has been found. A review of the literature has shown the importance of endoscopic evaluation in the diagnosis of lymphomatous polyposis.
CONCLUSIONS: Multiple lymphomatous polyposis due to mantle cell lymphoma has rarely been described in young patients under the age of 50 years. Gastrointestinal endoscopic examination is important for the early diagnosis of multiple lymphomatous polyposis.
