    Abstract

    Multiple lymphomatous polyposis is an uncommon but distinctive form of gastrointestinal lymphoma. Clinical symptoms may closely resemble those of colorectal carcinoma and diagnostic confusion may result. The condition has a characteristic pathological appearance and immunophenotype which is important in allowing distinction from other less aggressive forms of gastrointestinal lymphoma. We report a case of this unusual condition in which the diagnosis was aided by fine needle aspiration cytology.
