Abstract

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is the extranodal location most frequently involved in MALT lymphomas, and although MALT lymphomas can be found in the small intestine, most MALT lymphomas of the GI tract occur in the stomach. In addition, MALT lymphoma occurs predominantly in adults; however, a ten-year old female that was admitted to our hospital due to Rt. lower quadrant abdominal pain 1 month ago,was diagnosed with intussusception secondary to ileocecal MALT lymphoma. A biopsy specimen confirmed lymphocyte infiltration with lymphoepithelial lesions, suggesting a low grade MALT lymphoma. Therefore, we report a case of low-grade MALT lymphoma occurring in a ten-year-old female who presented with ileocecal intussusception.
