Primary T-cell lymphoma of the stomach is a rare disease, most gastric lymphomas being of B-cell type. Here we describe a unique case of primary neutrophil-rich CD30-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) of the stomach that was treated and cured by combined chemotherapy. According to our literature review, only 7 cases of primary gastric ALCL have been previously reported, none of them being of the neutrophil-rich subtype. Although very peculiar in its histological presentation, which may simulate an inflammatory or carcinomatous process, the natural history as well as the clinical features of this unusual gastric lymphoma does not differ from the other reported cases of gastric ALCL.
