Primary breast lymphoma is a rare tumor that presents commonly as a large mass with no specific mammographic appearance and can be confused with poorly differentiated carcinoma on frozen section. With appropriate treatment, this breast malignancy has a relatively good prognosis. We report a case of primary mammary non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in a 30-year-old young female presented with the complaint of painless lump in the right breast. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) suggested malignancy. Investigations ruled out metastasis, hence mastectomy was done. Immunochemistry of specimen revealed NHL of breast. Investigations to rule out any other site of lymphoma proved it to be primary NHL of breast with no metastasis. Anticancer drugs are main treatment rather than surgery so it is very important to accurately diagnose primary lymphoma of breast. © 2011 Kiba T.
