Multiple lymphomatous polyposis (MLP) is a term used to describe malignant lymphoma of the gastrointestinal tract that manifest as polyposis. MLP is believed to represent gastrointestinal involvement by mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), primarily based on its histologic and immunophenotypic similarities with MCL. We have experienced a case of MCL presented as a peculiar feature of multiple lymphomatous polyposis in a 49-year old male patient. He had been diagnosed diffuse large B cell lymphoma of nasopharynx and treated by radiation therapy and CHOP chemotherapy. He newly developed MCL after 10 years in complete remission of diffuse large B cell lymphoma. After newly developed lymphoma was compared with former diagnosed lymphoma, we concluded that they were not same type each other. We reviewed a total of 13 patients including this case, of MLP, which were reported in various Korean literature, and literatures are reviewed.
