Perforation of the small intestine is the most lethal complication following induction chemotherapy for enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL). We report a case of EATL with a near perforated jejunal ulcer, and suggest a novel approach towards its management. Surgical resection followed by aggressive chemotherapy should limit chemotherapy-associated gastrointestinal toxicity, thus allowing patients to receive adequate dose and duration of chemotherapy. The presented case highlights potential benefits of surgical intervention prior to chemotherapy for EATL.
