Primary gastric lymphoma is a relatively uncommon disease and sometimes forms submucosal growth causing difficulty of diagnosis. We have reported a case of primary gastric lymphoma successfully diagnosed by laparoscopic wedge resection, after repeatedly performing endoscopic forcep biopsies. Diagnostic laparoscopy for obtaining definite histological diagnosis can be regarded as minimally invasive, accurate and safe.
