Abstract

The patient was a 65-year-old woman with a compliant of epigastralgia. Endoscopic examination showed MALT lymphoma at the anterior and posterior wall in the body of the stomach. MALT lymphoma disappeared after two regimens of H. pylori eradications therapy and the patients became negative for H. pylori. Since it relapsed at a different site after 10 months, surgery was performed. This case suggested that regular examination for MALT lymphoma was required even after successful H. pylori eradication therapy.
