Esophageal involvement by non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is extremely unusual. For this reason, the differential diagnosis of symptoms referable to the esophagus in patients being treated for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma generally includes fungal or viral infection, therapy-related mucositis, and reflux esophagitis but not lymphomatous involvement. A patient is described who had development of dysphagia during treatment for lymphoma and involvement of the esophagus documented by biopsy.
