Abstract

Reported herein is a case of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the terminal ileum with a large-cell component, which regressed spontaneously. To the best of our knowledge, only five cases of spontaneously regressing MALT lymphoma have been reported in the English-language literature, and all of these cases were low-grade lymphomas. Spontaneous regression of a MALT lymphoma with a high-grade component is very rare. The present case suggests that MALT lymphoma cells have a reversible nature, even in the presence of a high-grade component.
