The synchronous diagnosis of colorectal malignancy and lymphoma is rare. We report five cases demonstrating this phenomenon with varying presentations, demonstrating the need for vigilance for the possibility of dual pathologies. In two patients colorectal malignancy staging CT scans identified pathological lymphadenopathy consistent with lymphoma. A further two patients had an incidental lymphoma on histological examination of the colorectal malignancy specimen. The fifth patient was found to have suspicious superior mesenteric lymph nodes at laparotomy. Histology confirmed two nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphomas, a lymphocytic-rich classical Hodgkin's lymphoma, a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and a B-cell follicular lymphoma.
