On admission, physical examinations disclosed several lymph nodes in the neck and the axilla. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy as part of the investigation for anaemia showed unusual findings in the oesophagus (fig 11)) and in the stomach (fig 22).). Endoscopic ultrasonography with a catheter probe on the gastric wall was carried out (fig 33).
