We report a 15-year-old male patient who presented with pain and edema on the right knee, fever, diaphoresis, headache, palpable lymph nodes and weight loss. Marked alteration of the epiphysis and proximal metaphysis of the tibia, and of the distal metaphysis of the femur were observed in the plain x-ray and MRI images. Biopsy and immunohistochemistry findings were compatible with diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
