Abstract

Introduction: Primary lymphoma of the bone (PLB) is a rare clinicopathological disease. PLB accounts for approximately 3% of all malignant tumors. It frequently affects the femur and pelvis, and the spine is affected only in 1.7% of all cases. Because it is a rare disease, the optimal treatment strategy has not yet been established.
