Abstract

Although lymphomas are generally considered as tumors of
lymph nodes about 25-40% arise at extranodal sites. We report
a case of a 60 years old female who developed a right breast
B-diffuse large cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2005 treated by
chemo/radio-therapy which relapsed at the same breast in 2007
and at the other breast in 2010. The patient underwent both
radiologic and nuclear medicine studies.
