Abstract

Primary lymphomas of the bone or skeletal muscle are rare. Three mechanisms of lymphomatous involvement of the muscle have been described, namely direct invasion from adjacent involved lymph nodes or bone, metastatic spread and, least commonly, primary muscle lymphoma. We herein present a rare case of primary mucle non‑Hodgkin lymphoma with a description if the associated clinicopathological findings and a review of the relevant literature. A 41‑year‑old female patient was referred to our hospital with a painful mass in the right lower extremity. Following resection and histopathological examination, a diffuse large B‑cell lymphoma originating from the muscle with cutaneous and subcutanenous infiltration was diagnosed. The patient received chemotherapy with six cycles of cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunomycin, oncovin and prednisone (CHOP regimen) and a complete radiological response was achieved after six cycles of treatment.
