Abstract

Primary pulmonary lymphoma is a rare disease. The most frequent primary pulmonary lymphoma (PPL) is extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma of MALT. About half of the patients are asymptomatic at diagnosis. We report a case of a 62-year-old male referred to us for preoperative assessment of surgery for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). He had no respiratory complaints but on evaluation was detected to have Pulmonary MALToma. Our case highlights the importance of tissue diagnosis.
