Primary hepatic lymphoma: A case report.

Resende V, Oliveira TS, Gomes RT, Laboissière RS, Tavares-Junior WC, de Melo Couto OF - Int J Surg Case Rep (2013)

Bottom Line: It is important to recognize PHL because it responds favorably to chemotherapy and may have a better prognosis than hepatocellular carcinoma or metastatic disease of the liver.This type of lesion is highly chemosensitive and early aggressive chemotherapy may result in sustained remission.This case emphasizes the importance of effective recognition of PHL considering its good response to chemotherapy and the possibility of sustained remission if early aggressive treatment is implemented.

Mentions: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings showed a hypointense area on T1-weighted images sized of 13 cm × 9 cm × 11 cm, and hyperintense on T2-weighted images (Fig. 1a). There was no mediastinal lymphadenopathy or brain involvement on CT scan.
