Laparoscopically assisted bowel resection for primary mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma of the cecum

, : Laparoscopically assisted bowel resection for primary mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma of the cecum. Surgical Laparoscopy, Endoscopy & Percutaneous Techniques 9(2): 156-159

We present the first report of laparoscopic resection for colorectal mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. A 76-year-old man was found to have MALT lymphoma of the cecum during colonoscopy. He underwent a laparoscopically assisted ileocecal resection after admission and was discharged 9 days postoperatively without any complications. Colorectal MALT lymphoma is a rare neoplasm that responds favorably to locally directed therapy, because it tends to remain localized for prolonged periods. Laparoscopic surgery for colorectal MALT lymphoma is considered feasible because it is minimally invasive, making it suitable for treatment of low-grade malignancies, such as MALT lymphoma, which cannot be removed endoscopically.
