The authors describe a case of primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the oesophagus. The diagnosis of lymphoma was preceded by histopathologic detection of cervical myositis. In the course of the principal disease the oesophagus becomes perforated which resulfed in oesophageal fistula, with an opening in the skin of the jugular incisure. Cytological examination of oesophageal scrapings showed evideence of lymphoma cells. Due to chemotherapy the fistula as well as oesophageal lesions healed. The authors postulate that in oesophageal fistula diagnosed in the course of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, cytological examination of oesophageal scrapings should be performed and the evidence of lymphoma cells should be taken into consideration token selecting patients for treatment with cutostatic agents.
