Abstract

Abstract: The case study reported here involves a 47 old man who presented with hematochesia, intermittent fever, anorexia, weight loss, and postprandial vomiting at our clinic. A upper gastrointestinal series with water-soluble contrast media was performed in addition to a gastroscopy, an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan, and surgical examination. These diagnostic tests revealed that the patient had gastric MALTOMA, gastrointestinal bleeding, and gastrocolic, gastropancreatic, and gastrosplenic fistulas, however, multiple fistulization of gastric MALT lymphoma to adjacent organs was not observed.
