A 74-year-old woman was referred to our institute after undergoing a medical checkup during which barium meal examination identified the presence of wall irregularity at the greater curvature of the gastric body. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) revealed an elevated submucosal tumor (SMT) -like lesion of 20 mm, and subsequent endoscopic ultrasonography showed a heterogeneous hypoechoic mass of 15 mm in diameter with clear borders in the second layer. Boring biopsy showed follicular and nodular lymphatic proliferations composed of small to medium-sized cells. Histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses resulted in the diagnosis of follicular lymphoma Grade 1. Imaging studies revealed Lugano Classification Stage Ⅰ. Radiotherapy at 30 Gy to the entire stomach was carried out, and EGD confirmed the presence of only a residual white scar at the corresponding location two months later. Event-free survival of one and one-half years has been observed at the time of this writing.
