|Abstract:||Primary gastric lymphoma is a rare gastrointestinal lymphoma. The treatment of this condition remains controversial, especially the extent of surgical resection. Ten cases were operated on over a five-year period at our institution and the outcome was reviewed. Early results suggest no difference in survival whether the margin of resection was clear or not so long as postoperative chemotherapy was given. The outcome appear to depend more on the extent of the disease at the time of surgery. Full thickness involvement of the stomach wall with lymph node involvement were bad prognostic indicators.|
