Abstract

We experienced a case of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the lung. The patient was 50-year-old woman. She had been pointed out a lung abnormal shadow on chest X-ray. A lung biopsy by a bronchofiberscope failed to diagnose, and an open lung biopsy under video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) offered diagnosis as a MALT lymphoma. We performed the tumor resection (a upper-middle lobectomy of the right lung with hilar and mediastinal lymph node dissection under VATS). The post-operative course of the patient was uneventful and she has been free from the disease until now. MALT lymphoma has been a comparatively rare disease, but once the curative resection is performed the prognosis of the disease is good.
