Abstract

Primary gastric lymphoma (PGL) is a relatively rare condition and easily underdiagnosed due to its nonspecific symptoms and signs. Perforation is an unusual complication; it is life threatening and leads to considerable morbidity from sepsis, multiorgan dysfunction, mortality and delay in the beginning of chemotherapy. Perforation predicts advanced disease and poor prognosis. Surgery is reserved for PGL complications and is no longer the standard of care. The prognosis of the disease is dependent on the histopathological subtype and stage at the time of diagnosis.
