Primary Bone Lymphoma is a rare disorder, even though secondary involvement of bone marrow in systemic Lymphoma is common. Most of Primary Bone Lymphomas are Primary Bone Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphomas. We describe a case of Primary Bone Lymphoma, initially treated as Osteomyelitis of unknown etiology. This case shows the difficulties that can occur while diagnosing this entity. We provide an overview of Clinical, Radiological, Pathological characteristics of these rare tumours along with review of Literature.
