Primary pancreatic lymphoma (PPL) is a rare form of extranodal lymphoma, and this accounts for less than 0.5% of all pancreatic tumors. Differentiating PPL from pancreatic adenocarcinoma is important because the prognosis and survival of PPL is much better than those of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Although the treatment usually consists of a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, PPL patient with biliary tract or gastrointestinal obstruction should undergo biliary or gastric bypass to relieve the symptoms. Herein, we describe a case of PPL with acute pancreatitis and obstructive jaundice, and the patient was successfully managed with endoscopic retrograde pancreatic and biliary drainage.
