Background: Primary bone non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma is an extremely rare especially in the hand and only four cases with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) of the hand have been reported in the worldwide. Case Report: We describe an additional case of 89-year old man with primary DLBCL of the hand with characteristic pathological fracture of the metacarpal bone of the thumb without Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), autoimmune disease or Methotrexate (MTX) treatment and underwent the ORIF with K-wires implants with chemotherapy. Conclusion: The preoperative diagnosis for DLBCL is very difficult. Orthopedic surgeons should be acquainted with the differential diagnosis of primary bony lymphoma. The definite diagnosis is based on histopathological with Immunohistochemical (IHC) study and imaging examination, in which other disease lesions should be excluded.
