Abstract

Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the pancreas is a rare disease. Its diagnosis is difficult without histological examination. In fact, clinical and imaging findings are not pathognomonic. Acute pancreatitis associated with pancreatic lymphoma is extremely rare. We have found only 7 case reports in literature. We report herein a new case of pancreatic lymphoma which was revealed by a severe pancreatitis.
