Abstract

We report a case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma found at the orifice of right B2 accompanied by peripheral lung cancer in a 66-year-old asymptomatic man. Chest X-ray films showed a mass shadow in the left lower lung field. Transbronchial lung biopsy of left S9 demonstrated squamous cell carcinoma. Simultaneously wall thickening at the orifice of the right B2 was found coincidentally. The biopsy specimen from that site showed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (diffuse B-cell type). After left lower lobectomy, systemic chemotherapy was performed. It is rare for malignant lymphoma to be recognized bronchofiberscopically.
