25 Years Old Women With Inflammatory Low Back Pain


Abstract: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most frequent histological type of malignant lymphomas (approximately 30% of cases). DLBCL is highly curable through chemotherapy. Rituximab in combination with CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) chemotherapy as the most frequent of care for first - DLBCL therapy, improves long-term survival of patients effectively. Case report: A young female (25 years old) complained about pain in her right back for two years. She was suffering from backache with priority in the right and contracture in mornings. Sacroiliac joint seemed normal but lytic and sclerotic lesions and also density changing of L5 and humerus head was revealed by CT scan. Biopsy was taken from the iliac bone and diffuse large B cell lymphoma was diagnosed. Conclusion: Chronic pains especially in axial skeleton, pelvis area and main joints must be taken seriously and examined by CT scan and MRI. If no particular issue was reported primarily while the pain was remained, a complete diagnosis BMB associated with PET must be applied. Despite of dependency on diagnosis the treatment by CHOP in association with rituximab is the most recommended chemotherapy alternative for patients with DLBCL.
