Primary bone lymphoma of the humerus about a case and literature review

Author(s): Mounir Yahyaoui*, Soufiane Aharram, Jawad Amghar, Omar Agoumi and Abdelkarim Daoudi

Primary localized bone lymphoma is a rare affection prevalent in humans. It often involves long bones, but can be found in all the skeleton bones. The diagnosis is based on the anatomopathological study with immunohistochemical study of a bone biopsy. Treatment is based on chemotherapy (with or without anti-CD20) followed by radiotherapy. The prognosis of primary localized bone lymphoma is very favorable. We also report the first diagnosed case of primary bone lymphoma of the humerus since the inauguration of our university hospital (since September 2014).
