Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) is the most common primary bone lymphoid malignancy, and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) accounts for the greatest percentage of cases. Here we report a 34-year-old male presented with pain and swelling of left shoulder joint of 2-month duration. There was no history of trauma. A diagnosis of intraosseous NHL-Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) was made. He was treated with six cycles of with R-CHOP (Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Vincristine, Doxorubicin and Prednisolone) chemotherapy. Our report suggests that primary intraosseous high-grade NHL, e.g. DLBCL can present as fracture in an unusual site in a young adult.
