Abstract

Background: Breast lymphoma is an uncommon disease with poor clinical
outcome. The rarity of the disease is related to relatively small amount of lymphoid
tissues in the breast. The prognosis usually depends on the stage at presentation.
Objective:To highlight an uncommon presentation of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Conclusion: Non–Hodgkin's lymphoma can affect the breast. A high index of
suspicion and prompt histological diagnosis are needed for effective management.
