Abstract

We present a unique case of a 65 year old woman with complaints of multiple swellings around the left ankle. we performed preoperative work up with radiography, CT and MRI and because of diagnostic dilemma, we planned for excision biopsy and sent for histopathological examination which suggested large B cell lymphoma and was confirmed by Immunohistochemistry. The patient subsequently underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy to the affected area.
