Gastrointestinal lymphoma of the bowel is uncommon compared to adenocarcinoma. Signet ring cell lymphoma [SRCL] is a rare variant of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that is characterized by clear cytoplasm with displaced nuclei to the periphery giving a signet ring appearance. Small bowel involvement has not been previously reported. We report the rare case of a 78-year-old female who presented with short history of fever, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, mild weight loss with abdominal discomfort and was later diagnosed to have SRCL of the ileum

(Refer to page 165) Answer: Chilaiditi’s sign and Chilaiditi’s syndrome Chilaiditi’s sign is defined by the asymptomatic interposition of part of the intestine (commonly the hepatic flexure of the colon) between the right hemi-diaphragm and the liver. It is usually an incidental finding. When symptomatic, it is referred to as the Chilaiditi’s syndrome. Presentations may range from intermittent recurrent mild abdominal pain to acute intestinal volvulus, though the symptoms reported so far have been inconsistent between different patients and can be nonspecific.
