Abstract

We report a case of massive peritoneal involvement in AIDS-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Abdominal CT scan showed a retroperitoneal lymphoadenopaty and a wide thickening of omental peritoneum. At laparoscopy a diffuse massive involvement of peritoneum mimicking carcinomatosis was demonstrated and an omentum biopsy revealed a diffuse infiltration of large cell NHL.
