Radiotherapy of primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the stomach

Radiotherapy of primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the stomach

Praxis 85(23): 765-770

Primary gastric non Hodgkin's lymphoma is a localized disease, which tends to local recurrences. Local treatment by surgery and/or radiotherapy is adequate for small low malignant primary gastric lymphomas of stages IE and IIE. Larger tumors should be resected before radiotherapy and systemic treatment. Chemotherapy alone has its impact in high grade lymphomas and as adjuvant treatment for tumors < 5 cm. Prospective randomized studies are underway to establish the respective role of the treatment modalities. The radiotherapeutic technique for gastric lymphomas is outlined. The risk of blocking part of the tumor volume by shielding the kidneys is mentioned.
