Abstract

MALT lymphoma of the urinary bladder is an uncommon entity. It typically arises from an inflammatory milieu, within which chronic antigenic stimulation leads to the formation of ectopic germinal centers. Within these immune sites, B-cell clones rapidly proliferate and neoplasia results. In this report, we present a case of bladder MALT lymphoma in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis. We then review the literature and suggest an inflammatory pathway that may link this autoimmune disease with lymphomagenesis.
