AbstractPrimary lymphoma of the colon is rare in clinical practice and sometimes difficult to diagnose. The author here described a case of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the large bowel, who presented with a palpable abdominal mass without clinical evidence of obstruction; ultrasound diagnosed a solid mass in the right iliac fossa. Laparotomy revealed a big mass extending from the caecum to the whole ascending colon and partially fixed to the posterior abdominal wall. Right hemicolectomy performed with iliotransverse anastamosis. The diagnosis of low grade B-cell lymphoma was established by histopathological examination.
