Abstract The infiltration of the skeletal muscles on the part of lymphomatous cells is rarely reported and only histological examination can reveal it. Based on a review of the literature, it is the purpose of this study to describe a rare case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with muscular invasion, characterized by voluminous swelling in the left gluteal region, in a female aged 60 years who was completely asymptomatic. Biopsy and immunohistochemistry alone allowed us to diagnose non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. It is the purpose of this study to document the existence of NHL with musculoskeletal localization, emphasizing the morphological features and the site, as well as hypothesizing that wide-margin surgery can constitute a valid therapeutic aid for such extralymphonodal forms, that are particularly large and with a single localization.
