Abstract

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) of the colon is a rare entity, usually presenting as lymphomatous polyposis. We report the case of a 43-year-old male with an unusual colonic MCL in the form of a single exophytic and ulcerous lesion with necrotic areas associated with an ileo-cecal intussusception. The endoscopic appearance suggested adenocarcinoma. However, the diagnosis was made by histology and immunohistochemistry studies of the endoscopic biopsies.
