Abstract

Primary duodenal lymphoma is very atypical, although the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is the most prominent site of extra nodal lymphoma. Here we present a case of 25 years old male, presented with upper abdominal pain and vomiting and eventually diagnosed as a case of duodenal non Hodgkin's lymphoma. The particular interest in this report is the fact that, it is important to have a high index of suspicion to diagnose primary intestinal lymphoma as it has high mortality which requires early diagnosis and treatment.
