Primary gastrointestinal (GI) tract lymphomas constitute 1%–4% of all GI malignancies. Primary lymphomas of appendix are even more rare and are seen in 0.015% of all appendicectomy specimens. Here, we report a rare case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma tumours in the appendix and distal ileum in a non-immune compromised young male patient who presented with intermittent intussusception and pain in the right iliac fossa. A laparoscopic right hemicolectomy was performed and the patient recovered uneventfully. Adjuvant chemotherapy (CHOP) in the form of CHOP regimen has been further advised.
