|Abstract:||We describe 53 patients with primary gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (38 stage IE,15 stage IIE) treated with surgery as a primary procedure. According to the Working Formulation, 13 cases had low, 21 had intermediate and 19 had high grade malignancy. 34 patients considered at high risk received postoperative polychemotherapy. The overall 10-year disease-related survival is 91%. Median follow-up is 52 months. 7 patients relapsed (13%). The 10-year disease-free survival rate of the 19 patients initially treated with surgery is 60%, as compared with 92% in the patients who also received chemotherapy (P = 0.004). However, overall survival did not differ between the two groups, since two-thirds of the patients who relapsed after surgery alone were rescued with chemotherapy. Stage, age, sex and histology did not correlate with survival. In our experience, surgery was an adequate first step procedure; the addition of chemotherapy significantly reduced relapses and increased the disease-free survival rate in patients with unfavourable prognostic factors.|
