Abstract

Secondary involvement of the gallbladder by systemic lymphoma is exceedingly rare and relapsed diffuse large B cell lymphoma of the gallbladder has not been reported. A 78-year-old man was admitted to the hospital due to epigastric pain and jaundice. His past medical history was remarkable for diagnosis with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the ileum 5 years ago. He underwent right hemicolectomy and three cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy and had complete remission. Abdominal computed tomography showed choledocholithiasis and focal thickening at fundus of the gallbladder. The patient underwent open cholecystectomy. Pathologic examination revealed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. We report a case of solitary, relapsed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the gallbladder with literature review.
