Abstract

A 69 year old man with a chronic left pyothorax was treated by decortication. Although the treatment rapidly improved respiratory function, histopathological examination revealed a diffuse large B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Subsequent bone marrow biopsy samples disclosed bone marrow involvement. It is possible that non-Hodgkin's lymphoma may develop from a chronic pyothorax.
