Abstract

Primary malignant lymphomas of the liver are extremely rare. Thus far, 28 cases (1-13) of this entity have been described, but after careful clinical and histological staging, no other sites of extrahepatic involvement were demonstrated in 17 of these cases (2, 3, 5-13). We recently had the opportunity to investigate and manage a case of true primary malignant peripheral T-cell lymphoma of the liver in a 22-year-old man. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of a primary T-cell lymphoma of the liver. The patient was successfully treated with a right trisegmentectomy and no tumor recurrence has appeared after five years.
