Abstract

A 75-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of right hypochondralgia. Computed tomography (CT) revealed a large tumor in the right lobe of the liver. Ultrasonography (US) showed vessels in the tumor. Needle biopsy specimens showed malignant lymphoma (Diffuse large B cell lymphoma). Ga scintigraphy and FDG-PET did not demonstrate other lesions and the definitive diagnosis was primary malignant lymphoma of the liver. CHOP with Rituximab therapy (R-CHOP therapy) was performed. After 8 courses of therapy the FDG-PET results were negative and we considered complete remission. We describe a case of primary malignant lymphoma of the liver treated successfully by R-CHOP therapy.
