Nodular lymphoid hyperplasia (NLH) is a type of rare, benign, lymphoproliferative disease. It is most commonly reported affecting the gastrointestinal and respiratory systems.
The presence of gut/mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (GALT/MALT) can be seen in children and young adults as a normal variant however in adults, the presence of MALT and nodular lymphoid hyperplasia is indicative of hypogammaglobulinaemia.
