Perforation of primary cecal non-Hodgkin lymphoma during chemotherapy. Clinical and therapeutic treatment
La Ganga V., Arata A., Rossi G., Di Ponzio D.
Primary cecal lymphoma are very rare. The case is reported of an elderly woman having voluntary preliminary chemotherapy with consequent cecum perforation due to tumoral necrosis, some days after the first chemotherapy. The diagnostic, clinical and therapeutic protocol is analysed and stress is laid on the rare clinical cases described. Resection is advisable in the still delimited forms in order to avoid surgical complications due to preliminary chemotherapy and in order to classify precisely the neoplasm.
