Lymphoma of the Bone

Lymphoma of the bone is defined as lymphoma arising within the medullary cavity of a bone in the absence of lymph node. Primary lymphoma of bone is rare (3% of primary bone tumors) and most lymphomas that involve bone are metastatic from lymph node. Most lymphomas of bone occur in people age 20 to 40 and are commonly found in the lower extremities specifically the femur and pelvis.
