Background: A case of simultaneous gastric adenocarcinoma and primary gastric lymphoma was first described in 1931. Methods: The case we describe corresponds to a 40 year-old patient suffering from epigastralgia and loss of weight. The gastroscopy shows thickened gastric folds. A complete gastrectomy is performed. Results: The histological examination shows an adenocarcinoma with a diffuse pattern presenting signet ring cells in the core of a dense and diffuse lymphoid infiltrate, which also presents typical lymphoepithelial lesions. Conclusions: The case of simultaneous gastric adenocarcinoma and mucous associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma in a patient is very infrequent. The infection by Helicobacter Pylori is an etopathogenic factor in the development of both neoplasms.
