Primary hepatic lymphoma represents <1% of extranodal lymphoma and predominantly seen in men older than 50 years of age. Exact etiology for these tumors is not certain yet, but presumed to be caused by certain viruses like Epstein-Barr virus and hepatitis C virus due to the frequent association of these viruses with disease. Most of these tumors are diffuse large B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Direct tissue histopathology with immunochemistry may give clues about diagnosis and prognosis up to certain extent. The rituximab-based chemotherapy is the mainstay of therapy for these tumors; the role of radiotherapy is still not clear but used for management for bulky tumors.
