Author(s): Prerana Saraswat, Sapna Singh, Rashmi Dixit, Anjali Prakash, Nita Khurana

We present a case of a 38-year-old male with osseous Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) involving bilateral femur, with secondary cardiac dissemination involving right atrium and pericardium extending into SVC. The article discusses the osseous involvement of lymphoma and emphasizes the presence of cardiac involvement in the extra nodal lymphoma which may cause secondary symptoms like SVC obstruction. Such cases carry poor prognosis and require treatment modification and careful monitoring to avoid cardiac complications after initiation of chemotherapy. Only few such cases have been described in literature so far.
