Abstract

Lymphomas of the gastrointestinal tract are usually secondary. Primary rectal lymphoma is very
rare by virtue of its location. We present here a 60 years old lady diagnosed as primary rectal diffuse
large B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma managed operatively. The optimum management of this
entity is still much debated.
