Adenocarcinoma is the most common type of malignant tumor arising in the stomach, accounting for approximately 95% of malignant gastric neoplasms. The majority of remainder is lymphoma. Although H. pylori infection has been implicated as a common cause of both adenocarcinoma and lymphoma of the stomach, synchronous occurrence of both tumors is very rare. We present a case of a 23- year-old-female who presented with epigastric discomfort and was found to have synchronous low-grade B-cell MALT lymphoma and adenocarcinoma of the stomach in association with H. pylori infection.
