Abstract
Background: Lung involvement is rare in Peripheral T cell lymphoma and lack of sufficient clinical study. The authors describe a rare case of lung involvement in a 41-year-old male patient with Extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma.
Methods: Hematologic investigation and left upper lobectomy of the lung were performed.
Results: The patient died 2 months after diagnosis of the disease.
Conclusions: Lung biopsy is important to confirm a diagnosis of primary pulmonary lymphoma. Lung involvement in T cell lymphoma as a prognostic factor needs further studies.

Keywords
Extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, Lung lobectomy, Lung involvement
