Abstract

A primary histiocytic lymphoma arising in the esophagus and its resultant spontaneous perforation is reported in a 69-year-old female. To our knowledge esophageal perforation occurring as a complication of a primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the esophagus has not been previously reported.
