Six patients of primary lymphoma of breast are presented. All our patients were female with median age of 46 years. Combination chemotherapy was the mainstay of treatment in all the patients. Five patients achieved complete remission of which two relapsed, one had a distant relapse and the other was local. Patient with distant relapse expired after a follow-up of 224 months whereas the one with local recurrence was well controlled with radiotherapy only. The role of combination chemotherapy to decrease the distant relapse and thereby mortality is discussed.
