Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) has been etiologically linked with primary gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma and gastric carcinoma; however, synchronous and metachronous development of these two neoplasm is a rare finding. The metachronous development of early gastric cancer following gastric MALT lymphoma is even more exceptional, and less than 10 cases have been reported on the literature. We encountered one case of early gastric cancer which occurred 38 months after the complete remission of H. pylori associated gastric MALT lymphoma. We report here on this case along with a review of the literature.
