    A synchronous presentation of an adenocarcinoma and a primary low grade B cell lymphoma of the stomach is reported in a 79 year old man. Both diagnoses were made on endoscopic biopsies and immunocytochemistry was essential in confirming the lymphoma. The true incidence, aetiology and spatial relations of these tumours are unknown since only few cases of such synchronous gastric tumours have been reported in the literature.
