Abstract

Primary non Hodgkin’s lymphomas of the breast is a rare disease representing 0.38-0.70% of all non Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL), 1.7-2.2% of all extranodal NHL and only 0.04-0.5% of all breast tumors. We report a case of an old woman with a primary diffuse large B-cell NHL of the breast who is still alive and disease free after 10 years since the end of treatment with a R-CHOP regimen followed by radiotherapy on residual disease. A review of the literature is also presented.
