The diagnosis of gastric lymphoma in endoscopic biopsy specimens remains difficult despite the emergence of accepted criteria for the histologic diagnosis of lymphomas originating from mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT). The sensitivity and validity of immunoglobulin (Ig) gene rearrangement analysis of mucosal biopsies for the diagnosis of malignant B-cell lymphoma were investigated in comparison with conventional histology and immunohistology. Biopsy specimens from 34 different… CONTINUE READING
