Ahmad Aleid, Muhammad Yousuf Memon, Saeed Alshieban, Abdul Monem Swied.

Abstract
MALT Lymphoma is now recognized as a distinct subtype of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) with distinguishable immunopathological characteristics. MALT lymphoma of GI tract is rare and most of the cases are found in the stomach, other parts of GI tract are affected very rarely. Here we present a case of a sixty-four years old Saudi female diagnosed with cecal MALT lymphoma, presented to gastroenterology clinic with chronic mild nonspecific abdominal pain for several years. She was treated initially as irritable bowel syndrome, subsequently underwent CT abdomen and colonoscopy, which revealed subepithelial cecal mass. Biopsy and immunohistochemistry were consistent with cecal MALT lymphoma.

Key words: Cecal MALT Lymphoma, Extra nodal Non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Intestinal Marginal Zone Lymphoma (I-MZL)
