Abstract

Primary breast lymphoma (PBL) represents 0.04-0.5% of all malignant breast tumors, <1% of all patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas and 1.7-2.2% of all patients with extra nodal lymphomas. Despite the high prevalence of breast cancer, primary breast lymphoma is very rare. We report a rare case of PBL, successfully treated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. This is the first case of PBL to be reported from Sudan to our knowledge.

Keywords

Primary breast lymphoma; non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
