Gastrointestinal lymphomas have attracted increasing interest over the past few years and are a topic characterized by intensive and ongoing activity. Insights in their pathogenesis and biological behavior have expanded impressively. However, this increased understanding has also raised many new questions. Experts from all over the world came together to exchange their experiences and to discuss new concepts at an international Symposium in Würzburg, Germany, in 1998. This book summarizes the presentations.
