  • 1Department of Surgery, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia.


Primary splenic lymphoma accounts for 1% of lymphomas. The definition of primary splenic lymphoma is controversial and its clinical presentation is variable. This report describes a patient with primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the spleen with transmural colonic invasion. This unique case represents the first reported instance of splenic lymphoma with histologically demonstrated invasion to the colonic mucosa. The clinical and pathologic features of this case and primary splenic lymphoma in general are reviewed.
