Primary bone lymphoma is defined as a tumor involving a single focus with unequivocal evidence of lymphoma in the bone lesion. It is rare. Most cases are of the diffuse large B-cell category. The age distribution is bimodal with peaks in the second to third decade, and a second peak in the fifth to sixth decade with women more commonly affected in the older age group. There is a wide pattern of bone involvement with the spine forming the most frequent site of axial lesions, and the femur is the most common site overall.
