Abstract

A 24-year-old male presented with radiating back pain and progressive neurological deficit. MRI revealed spinal epidural tumor at the thoracolumbar junction. He underwent decompression and excisional biopsy. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry identified it as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. He received chemotherapy and is asymptomatic at one-year follow-up.
