  • Patients with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) generally bear a higher risk of non Hodgkin B-cell lymphomas and solid tumors, in particular gastric adenocarcinoma.Here we report a case of a 58-year-old male CVID patient who developed both malignancies within a very short period, as documented by two subsequent esophagogastroduodenoscopies performed within 4 months. While the first upper gastrointestinal endoscopy for routine surveillance purposes was uneventful, the second one after developing unexplained weight loss revealed two new neoplastic lesions in the stomach. The histological evaluation revealed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma infiltrating the muscularis propria forcing gastrectomy as well as a high-grade B-non-Hodgkin-lymphoma with detection of a MYC- and BCL6-translocation, necessitating chemotherapy with R-CHOP.This case emphasizes the necessity of high awareness for gastric neoplasia in patients with CVID and highlights the need of a standardized yet not established endoscopic surveillance protocol for this vulnerable group.
