Lymphomas are hematological malignancies with a wide variety of histological subtypes, varied clinical manifestations and behaviour and have a wide range of organ involvement. About 40 per cent of lymphomas are extra nodal. The most common extra nodal site is gastrointestinal tract (GIT). In the GIT, stomach is the most common organ involved accounting for 50–60 per cent of the lesions. Colorectal lymphomas are rare and account for 15–20 per cent of GIT lymphomas. They constitute 1 per cent of colorectal malignancies. Most common histological type of lymphoma involving GIT is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, followed by MALT lymphoma; T-cell lymphomas are very rare and have an incidence of 3 per cent of Non Hodgkins Lymphoma (NHL). We report a case of anaplastic large cell lymphoma in the caecum and ascending colon with review of literature.
