Core Tip

Core Tip: In this review, after Helicobacter pylori eradication failure, radiotherapy is an effective and well tolerated treatment in localized gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. A moderate dose of 30 Gy allows a high cure rate while being well tolerated. Long-term gastric endoscopy follow-up is necessary to detect a possible occurrence of a stomach carcinoma.
