Regression of primary high-grade gastric B-cell lymphoma following Helicobacter pylori eradication.

Author information

West Wales General Hospital, Carmarthen, UK.


The causative association between Helicobacter pylori and gastric mucosal inflammation is well established. The inflammatory process leads to the acquisition of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) by the stomach. Evidence links H. pylori gastritis with the development of low-grade primary gastric lymphoma with a phenotype specific for lymphoma of MALT type. It is now accepted that primary low-grade MALT lymphomas regress with H. pylori eradication therapy. However, the response of primary, diffuse, large-cell gastric lymphoma to H. pylori eradication therapy is still not established. We report a case of a primary high-grade gastric lymphoma regressing after H. pylori eradication therapy.
