Methods Clinical data and image findings were reviewed,and histopathological and immunohistochemical changes were observed in 30 cases of PLB. Results These 30 cases were diffuse non-Hodgkin's lymphoma(NHL), all of them exhibited bone pain associated with radiologic appearance of lytic lesions, with a few cases presented sclerosis and cystic lesion; there were low clinical and pathological diagnosis consistency. Immunohistochemical examination revealed 21 cases of B-cell and 9 T-cell type lymphomas. Conclusion PLB is easy to be misdiagnosed only by clinical manifestation and X-ray.
