The radiological features of bone lesions in patients affected by malignant lymphoma (Hodgkin's lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of bone) were studied. For each bone lesion the site and type of alteration, the involvement of the cortex and adjacent soft tissue, the periosteal reaction and the presence of a pathological fracture were considered. The radiological aggressiveness of bone lesions in malignant lymphoma was assessed on the basis of these data according to Lodwick criteria; the lower aggressiveness of bone lesions of Hodgkin's than in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is stressed.
