Cureus. 2020 Sep 24;12(9):e10633. doi: 10.7759/cureus.10633.


Primary lymphoma of the liver is extremely rare, and is more common among immunocompromised patients. It typically occurs after the fifth decade of life and has a male predominance. It often presents with diagnostic difficulties to both clinicians and pathologists as most cases have a solitary or multiple mass lesions in the liver with normal alpha-fetoprotein levels. Chemotherapy is the standard of therapy. Here, we describe a unique case of primary hepatic lymphoma in an elderly

immunocompetent female who presented with symptomatic hypercalcemia.
