Core tip: Endoscopic findings in gastrointestinal-acquired immune deficiency syndrome (GI-AIDS) related lymphoma (ARL) are miscellaneous and may be different from non-AIDS GI lymphoma. We report a rare case of GI-ARL with MYC rearrangements and coinfected with Epstein-Barr virus infection, and there are multiple findings involving stomach, duodenum, and colon and rectum. Magnified endoscopy with narrow band imaging showed a honeycomb-like pattern without irregular microvessels in the dish-like lesions of the stomach. Moreover we conducted literature review of GI-ARL. To our knowledge, this is the first report of GI-ARL with MYC arrangements and presenting an atypical endoscopic appearances.
