Abstract

Gastric MALT lymphoma usually presents with various endoscopic morphologic characteristics. The majority of gross findings reveal multiple and superficial erosions or ulcerations. However gastric MALT lymphoma, presenting as a submucosal tumor, is very rare. We recently experienced a case of low-grade gastric MALT lymphoma, presenting as a submucosal tumor-like lesion without definite mucosal lesion, confirmed by endoscopic mucosal resection. So we report this case with a review of the related literatures.
