Management of Enteropathy-Associated T-Cell Lymphoma: An Algorithmic Approach.

  • 1Department of Surgery, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, Livingston, N.J., USA.


Perforation of the small intestine is the most lethal complication following induction chemotherapy for enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL). We report a case of EATL with a near perforated jejunal ulcer, and suggest a novel approach towards its management. Surgical resection followed by aggressive chemotherapy should limit chemotherapy-associated gastrointestinal toxicity, thus allowing patients to receive adequate dose and duration of chemotherapy. The presented case highlights potential benefits of surgical intervention prior to chemotherapy for EATL.
