Abstract

An unusual primary intestinal lymphoma that occurred as a complication of ileal Crohn's disease is presented. Immunohistochemistry confirmed the light microscopic diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease (nodular sclerosing), anti characterized a distinct mucosal nodule as a large-cell ariaplastic non- Hodgkin's lymphoma. This unusual lymphoma developed while the patient was being treated with immunosuppressant medication. The present report is a reminder to clinicians of the possibility of occult lymphoma in ileal Crohn's disease.
