The most commonly seen pathological type of rectal cancer is adenocarcinoma. The involvement of the colorectal tract with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is a very rare clinical condition. A-65-year old man was admitted with complaints of weight loss and hematochezia. A rectal mass that mimicked rectal carcinoma was diagnosed by rectal examination and supported by the colonoscopy. The final report of the rectal mass biopsy reported as rectal lymphoma. Thoracoabdominal computed tomography was showed rectal wall thickening which surrounded small lymph nodes. Additional examinations didn’t reveal any evidence of infiltration to other organs. The patient diagnosed as primary rectal lymphoma and chemotherapy was started by the hematology department. Rare pathologies such as rectal lymphoma must be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of rectal mass cases. Since both rectal carcinoma and rectal lymphoma have similar appearances in clinical and radiological studies, it is difficult to make a differential diagnosis.

Rektum kanserinin en sık görülen patolojik tipi adenokarsinomdur. Diffüz büyük B-hücreli lenfomanın kolorektal sistem tutulumu çok nadir görülen bir klinik durumdur. Atmış beş yaşında erkek hasta kilo kaybı ve hematokezya şikayetleri ile başvurdu. Rektal muayene ile rektal karsinomu taklit eden bir kitle teşhis edildi ve kolonoskopi ile desteklendi. Rektal kitle biyopsisinin nihai raporu rektal lenfoma olarak raporlandı. Çekilen torakoabdominal bilgisayarlı tomografi rektum çevresinde küçük lenf nodları ve rektum duvarında kalınlık artışı olduğunu gösterdi. Yapılan ek tetkikler başka bir organ tutulumu olmadığını gösterdi. Hasta primer rektum lenfoma tanısı aldı ve hematoloji bölümü tarafından kemoterapi başlandı. Rektal kitle vakalarının ayırıcı tanısında rektal lenfoma gibi nadir patolojiler akılda tutulmalıdır. Hem rektal karsinom hem de rektal lenfoma klinik ve radyolojik çalışmalarda benzer görünümlere sahip olduğundan, ayırıcı tanı zordur.
