Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma: multimodality imaging and histopathologic correlation

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2010 Aug;195(2):W105-17. doi: 10.2214/AJR.09.4105.


Objective: We will illustrate the imaging features of gastrointestinal and nongastrointestinal mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma and their correlation with histopathologic findings. The radiologic features to distinguish gastrointestinal MALT lymphoma from other types of lymphomas will also be described.

Conclusion: Differences in clinical behavior and management make it exceedingly important to differentiate MALT lymphoma from other types of lymphomas. Radiologic and histopathologic findings need to be taken into account before making a diagnosis and treatment plan.
