Primary lymphoma of bone (PLB) is a rare entity, defined as a lymphoma confined to the bone without evidence of systemic involvement. The disease commonly affects middleaged to elderly population and it accounts for less than 1% of all malignant lymphomas. We present a case of a 10-year-old child affected by PLB of the forearm and the frontal bone. Characteristic imaging features of PLB and the main differential diagnosis were discussed.

Abstract

Primary lymphoma of bone (PLB) is a rare entity, defined as a lymphoma confined to the bone without evidence of systemic involvement. The disease commonly affects middleaged to elderly population and it accounts for less than 1% of all malignant lymphomas. We present a case of a 10-year-old child affected by PLB of the forearm and the frontal bone. Characteristic imaging features of PLB and the main differential diagnosis were discussed.
