RODRIGUEZ DUQUE, JC et al. Primary bone lymphoma. Rev Osteoporos Metab Miner [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.4, pp.145-148. ISSN 2173-2345.

Skeletal involvement in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is not uncommon. It tends to be a late manifestation and usually occurs secondary to lymphomas in advanced stage, with high tumor burden. However, only in a few cases has skeletal involvement been attributed to a primary bone lymphoma and constitutes, therefore, the form of presentation of this disease. We describe the case of a patient with primary B-cell lymphoma of the bone that appeared with vertebral lesions and secondary spinal compression.

Keywords : non-Hodgkin's lymphoma B; primary bone lymphoma; spinal cord compression.
