Abstract

We report a case of primary lymphoma in a 66-year-old woman who presented with unresponsive cellulitis. Histopathological sections carried out on the woman revealed a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Atypical physical findings of cellulitis such as fibrotic and woody induration may be suggestive of a non-infectious disease.
