A Case Report on Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma of the Stomach
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Medicine and Health,
The purpose of this paper is to present a rare case of a young female who was diagnosed with gastric diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and was successfully treated with concomitant eradication therapy and immunochemotherapy.
The importance of Helicobacter pylori (HP)-eradication therapy in various histological forms of gastric DLBCL and the potential to replace the immunochemotherapy or to be combined with it in selected patients remain the matter of further research.
