Abstract

Three cases of small bowel lymphoma in young homosexual men are presented. All three had acquired immune deficiency syndrome as demonstrated by demography, sexual history, cachexia, opportunistic infections by Cytomegalovirus, Pneumocystis carinii, atypical Myocbacterium, Candida, and/or evidence of immune deficiency, such as skin test anergy, lymphopenia, inversion of T-helper/T-suppressor ratio, and diminished lymphocyte response to either phytohemmaglutinin or pokeweed mitogen. All had peripheral and/or abdominal lymphadenopathy, and gastrointestinal symptoms, e.g., diarrhea, spasms, constipation, and oral candidiasis. The diagnosis of lymphoma was made at laparotomy in all cases. All three had complete removal of localized tumor (stage I(e) or II(e)), yet died within 6 months of surgery and/or chemotherapy. Thus gastrointestinal complaints may not always be related to gay bowel syndrome, or other infectious diseases in patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome. Small intetinal lymphoma should be added to the list of neoplasms in which this group is susceptible.
