Non-Hodgkin lymphoma with primary involvement of skeletal muscle.

Alamdari A, Naderi N, Peiman S, Shahi F - Int J Hematol Oncol Stem Cell Res (2014)

Bottom Line: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma usually presents with generalized lymphadenopathy, but it can also involve any part of the human body.Lymphomatous involvement of muscles is a rare presentation and has been reported to occur in only 1.1% in non-Hodgkin lymphoma.Here we, present a 32 year-old Iranian man with primary involvement of spleen, bone, bone marrow and muscle, mimicking soft tissue sarcoma; core needle biopsy of the gluteal muscle showed diffuse large B cell lymphoma.

Figure 1: Abdominal Computerized Tomography showing multiple hypodense lesions in the spleen

Mentions: Abdominal Computerized Tomography (CT) scan demonstrated multiple hypodense lesions in the spleen (Fig.1). Diffuse enlargement of left paraspinal, iliopsoas and gluteal muscles were also reported (Fig.2). Thoracic CT scan showed one lymph node (12mm in size) in the posterior mediastinum.
