      Abstract

      The distribution of enlarged lymph nodes in the upper abdomen and retroperitoneum were classified according to their relationship to the pancreas in 47 patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; in nine patients with Hodgkin's disease; and in 40 patients with pancreatic carcinoma. Four patterns of lymph node enlargement were evident: (1) preaortic retropancreatic lymph ad en opathy; (2) pancreatico-splenic lymphadenopathy; (3) isolated celiac and/ or portal lymphadenopathy; and (4) diffuse extensive lymphadenopathy. Features differentiating lymphoma from primary pancreatic neoplasm are discussed.
