Clin. [online]. 2002, vol.57, n.5, pp.223-228. ISSN 0041-8781. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0041-87812002000500006.
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.
