Lymphoma presenting as a case of asymptomatic pleural effusion is a rare entity. We report a case of 56 years old average build male from northern India who is a known case of osteoporosis and vitamin B12 deficiency diagnosed few years before, came to our institute for routine health checkup without any symptom. Chest X-ray showed right sided pleural effusion. We planned for Pleural fluid study which was suggestive of lymph proliferative disorder. We decided to evaluate this patient in detail to look for type of malignancy, systemic involvement and treatment as early possible.
