Radiologic manifestations of esophageal lymphoma

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 1977 May;128(5):751-4. doi: 10.2214/ajr.128.5.751.


Eight cases of esophageal lymphoma are presented. Contiguous involvement of the distal esophagus and stomach with narrowing and/or nodularity was the most common esophageal abnormality. Other appearances noted were an ulcerated mass, multiple submucosal nodules, and a pattern simulating varices. The spectrum of radiologic appearances with esophageal lymphoma is similar to lymphomatous involvement in the remainder of the gastroinestinal tract.
