Abstract

We herein report two patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), who had isolated mass and multiple lymphomatous polyposis (MLP) in the gastrointestinal tract. In case 1, esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a protruding mass in the duodenum and double-balloon endoscopy disclosed numerous polypoid lesions in the ileum. Case 2 had polyposis in the duodenum and a large mass-forming lesion in the ascending colon. Based on the histologic and immunohistochemical findings of the biopsy specimens, the diagnosis of MCL was made in both patients. A combination of isolated mass and MLP is considered as characteristic endoscopic findings of intestinal lesions of MCL.
