Abstract

Primary cardiac lymphoma (PCL) is an extremely rare disease defined as a lymphoma strictly confined to the heart or pericardium without dissemination. We present the case of an 82 yr old male with newly diagnosed PCL and two years of subsequent follow up. This report highlights the utility of a multimodality imaging approach in the diagnosis and management of PCL.
