CHAIB, Eleazar; LEITE, Katia Ramos Moreira; SAAD, Willian Abrão  and  GAMA-RODRIGUES, Joaquim. Primary lymphoma of the liver treated by extended hepatectomy and chemotherapy: a case report. Rev. Hosp. Clin. [online]. 2002, vol.57, n.5, pp. 223-228. ISSN 1678-9903.

Primary lymphoma of the liver is an extremely rare entity. A case of anaplastic large B-cell (both CD-20 and lambda positive) non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that was confined to the liver in a 33-year-old man is reported. The patient was treated with an extended right hepatectomy and combination chemotherapy: cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, and prednisone. The patient was disease free 24 months after the procedure.

Keywords : Liver lymphoma; Surgery; Chemotherapy.
