Definition

Mucosa-associated lymphatic tissue (MALT) lymphoma is a low-grade B-cell gastric non-Hodgkin lymphoma (Hodgkin Disease). In contrast to the lymph nodes or spleen it is not as anatomically distinct but is embedded in the mucosae of various organs. Gut-associated lymphatic tissue is called GALT and bronchus-associated lymphatic tissue BALT.
