Abstract
Objective: Lymphomas with involvement of soft tissues as an ulcer or sore as a primary event are very rare. We present varied cases like ALCL, Angioimmunoblastic lymphoma, Marginal zone lymphoma, PTCL and DLBL with soft tissue involvement and compared with the database of ten years. Case report: In this article we describe our experience with soft tissue non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) diagnosed and treated in our institution over a 1 year period. The most common histologic subtype was diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) followed by ALCL. Conclusions: Though indolent soft tissue B-cell NHLs appear to have a good outcome, soft tissue DLBCLs, ALCL and AITCL represent an anatomic-clinical entity with aggressive features, and dismal prognosis.
