ABSTRACT

The endoscopic findings of gastric MALT lymphoma are variable, making its diagnosis very difficult. Although there are many reports on the endoscopic findings of gastric cancer, there are few on those of gastric MALT lymphoma. Herein, we summarize the reports on the endoscopic findings of gastric MALT lymphoma, and report its endoscopic diagnosis.
