Adult T-cell lymphoma (ATLL) is an aggressive neoplasm of T-lymphocytes, usually associated with human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1). Variegated clinical presentation. Primary gastric lymphomas most frequently have type B non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NH) as an etiology, and a minimal percentage is due to T lymphocytes.
