Objectives We report four new cases of natural killer-cell enteropathy (NKCE) and similar lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs), as well as review the literature concerning indolent natural killer (NK)-cell LPDs of the gastrointestinal tract. Methods Pathologic and clinical data were obtained from institutional/referral records. Results Patient 1 (45-year-old man) had anemia; a small intestinal lesion was endoscopically biopsied. Patient 2 (65-year-old woman) had biliary colic, treated with… 

Lymph node involvement by enteropathy-like indolent NK-cell proliferation

A unique case of lymph node infiltration by such EBV-negative NK-cell proliferation fortuitously found during routine examination of a gallbladder resected for biliary lithiasis is described.

An Enteropathy-like Indolent NK-Cell Proliferation Presenting in the Female Genital Tract.

This report reports a unique case where an indolent lymphoproliferative disorder with features that resemble NK-cell enteropathy is encountered for the first time outside the gastrointestinal tract, specifically in the female genitourinary tract.

Lymphomatoid gastropathy/NK-cell enteropathy involving the stomach and intestine

A link between the pathogenesis of LyGa/NKCE and H. pylori infection is suggested, which is typically observed in the small and large intestines in North America, whereas almost all cases in Japan occur locally in the stomach.

Primary Gastrointestinal T-Cell Lymphoma and Indolent Lymphoproliferative Disorders: Practical Diagnostic and Treatment Approaches

This review provides a cross-sectional comparison of histological findings and summarized up-to-date clinically relevant information including the treatment strategies as well as practical differential diagnosis based on thorough literature review of primary gastrointestinal T-cell neoplasms.

Indolent T-Cell Lymphoproliferative Disorders of the Gastrointestinal Tract (iTLPD-GI): A Review

A biomarker-based approach to the diagnosis is provided and the most common issues in differentiating iTLPD-GI from other neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders are described.

Gastrointestinal T- and NK-cell lymphomas and indolent lymphoproliferative disorders.

The salient clinical, histopathologic, immunophenotypic, and molecular characteristics of primary GI T/NK-cell lymphomas and LPDs are described in view of recent developments and the differential diagnostic considerations are discussed.

Natural Killer Cell Enteropathy With Extraintestinal Involvement: Presenting as Symptomatic Anemia

This atypical entity in a young adult man presenting with vague upper gastrointestinal symptoms and anemia requiring blood transfusion is described, and the response to budesonide therapy points toward a possible low-grade autoimmune process.

Overview of Gastrointestinal Lymphoproliferative disorders✰.

An overview of WHO classification of digestive tumors and World Health Organization (WHO) classification of tumors of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissue is discussed focusing on the changes in the most recent WHO texts.

Cellular Origins and Pathogenesis of Gastrointestinal NK- and T-Cell Lymphoproliferative Disorders

The current state of knowledge about the main types of immune cells in the gastrointestinal mucosa and the processes by which they may transform into neoplasms are summarized.

An Enteropathy-like Indolent NK-Cell Proliferation Presenting in the Female Genital Tract.

This report reports a unique case where an indolent lymphoproliferative disorder with features that resemble NK-cell enteropathy is encountered for the first time outside the gastrointestinal tract, specifically in the female genitourinary tract.

NK-cell enteropathy: a benign NK-cell lymphoproliferative disease mimicking intestinal lymphoma: clinicopathologic features and follow-up in a unique case series.

The term "NK-cell enteropathy" is proposed for this syndrome of as yet unknown etiology that mimics intestinal and NK-/T-cell lymphomas on endoscopic biopsies and can result in erroneous diagnosis, leading to aggressive chemotherapy.

Lymphomatoidgastropathy mimicking extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type: a case report.

A case of H. pylori-positive lymphomatoid gastropathy with massive NK-cell proliferation is reported in a 57-year-old female, and the possibility of this benign entity should be considered, and excessive treatment should be carefully avoided.

Atypical NK-cell Proliferation of the Gastrointestinal Tract in a Patient With Antigliadin Antibodies but not Celiac Disease

We describe a unique case of atypical natural killer (NK)-cell proliferation likely related to gluten sensitivity, mimicking NK-cell lymphoma. The patient, a 32-year-old man, has had persistent

Benign Indolent CD56-Positive NK-Cell Lymphoproliferative Lesion Involving Gastrointestinal Tract in an Adolescent

The first Korean case, as well as the first case in an adolescent, of NK-cell enteropathy is reported, and early recognition of this entity could be important for appropriate disease management.

Clinicopathologic Analysis of 6 Lymphomatoid Gastropathy Cases: Expanding the Disease Spectrum to CD4−CD8+ Cases

6 cases of lymphomatoid gastropathy were analyzed by investigating the clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular findings, and 2 cases showed previously unreported unique immunophenotypes of CD4−CD8+.

A case of lymphomatoid gastropathy: a self-limited pseudomalignant natural killer (NK)-cell proliferative disease mimicking NK/T-cell lymphomas

A rare case of lymphomatoid gastropathy in a 71-year-old female is reported, it is important that endoscopists consider this rare entity in the differential diagnosis, and excessive treatment should be avoided.

Lymphomatoid gastropathy: a distinct clinicopathologic entity of self-limited pseudomalignant NK-cell proliferation.

10 cases of unrecognized self-limited natural killer-cell proliferation in the stomach, designated as lymphomatoid gastropathy (LyGa), which is recognized as a pseudomalignant process because of its clinical characteristics are reported.
