Abstract

We report five cases of primary follicular lymphoma of the duodenum, and discuss with focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of them. On diagnosis, it is important to notice the patchy whitish nodular lesion at the duodenum around the ampulla of Vater on the endoscopic examination. Phenotypic analysis with immunohistochemical procedure should be done for the proper diagnosis. The treatment of primary follicular lymphomas of the duodenum is very heterogeneous in the literature. This includes the 'watch and wait' policy, irradiation, surgical excision, and rituximab in combination with chemotherapy. Since the follicular lymphoma of the duodenum is infrequent, no standard therapy is yet established.
