Abstract

Low-dose induction radiotherapy was performed in 4 patients with massive gastric lymphoma in order to treat the disease without gastrectomy. Following the radiotherapy, gastric lesions had shrunk considerably without any complications. Standard chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy could then be performed safely, and stomach conservation could be achieved in all 4 patients.
