Abstract

Fine needle aspiration of a cecal mass was performed on a patient with a cecal tumor and iron-deficiency anemia. Cytologic studies of the air-dried smears showed large cell lymphoma. The diagnosis of large cell lymphoma of the B-cell type was affirmed by immunocytochemical studies and at laparotomy and resection of the tumor. Even under unusual circumstances, the diagnosis of such a rare abdominal lesion as primary cecal lymphoma can be made with certainty by cytologic and immunologic studies of fine needle aspirates.
