    Abstract

    Thirteen cases of lymphoma of the bowel in infancy and childhood are presented. There is a marked preponderance in males. The tumour most commonly presents with abdominal pain and intestinal obstruction; the prognosis is poor. Histological findings characteristic of the `Burkitt' type of lymphosarcoma do not apparently influence survival.
