Follicular lymphoma (FL) is the most common subtype of indolent non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. We present the case of a 57-year-old woman who initially complained of abdominal fullness and unintentional weight loss. A computerized tomography scan disclosed a huge mesenteric mass and confluent lymphadenopathy in the paraaortic area, and the pathological diagnosis of a paraaortic lymph node biopsy showed histological Grade 1–2 FL. She received chemoimmunotherapy, including rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone, for Ann Arbor Stage III FL disease accompanied by compression symptoms, and achieved a nearly complete remission after completing eight cycles of chemoimmunotherapy. She is currently receiving maintenance rituximab therapy.
