Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of ileum.
A 51-year-old man with a 10-month history of abdominal pain and
bloating. A gastroscopy and colonoscopy did not reveal anything
abnormal. More recently the patient noticed loss of weight and
diarrhoea. On examination, loud borborygmi could be heard and a
sucussion splash was evident. A barium meal and follow-through showed
dilated loops of small bowel, with a stricture in the distal ileum. At
laparotomy there were two strictures in the distal ileum. These were
resected and found to be non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
