Abstract

Among malignant neoplasms of the pancreas, lymphomas have a very low incidence. Nevertheless, the dramatic difference in prognosis and treatment between pancreatic carcinoma and lymphoma stresses the importance of a correct diagnosis, especially because most lymphomas of the biliopancreatic region are low-grade B-cell type. The case observed by us shares clinical and pathological features with the few previously reported in literature, and focuses clinicians' attention on the diagnosis of this unusual neoplasm whose clinical behaviour is characterized by obstructive jaundice and overlaps with that of epithelial tumours.
