A 55-year-old man whose fecal occult blood test was positive visited our hospital because of further examination of lower gastrointestinal tract. Ileocolonoscopy and double contrast radiograph revealed several small elevated lesions like a worm with smooth surface in the terminal ileum. CD20 positive follicular lymphoma was diagnosed by biopsy specimen and its immunohistochemical study. He was given six courses of combination therapy with CHOP plus anti-CD20 antibody (Rituximab), and achieved complete remission. The lesions in terminal ileum may be the feature in early stage of multiple lymphomatous polyposis.
