Primary colonic lymphoma (PCL) is uncommon. We report such a case in a 76-year-old man who presented with diarrhoea and a barium enema that suggested a diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, subsequent endoscopy confirmed the diagnosis of PCL. PCL is a rare entity and can be misdiagnosed as IBD because of the symptoms and radiological findings. The correct diagnosis is important, since the management of these two conditions is entirely different.
