Primary hepatic lymphoma is a very rare malignancy representing ~0.016% of all cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. It often presents in elderly persons with signs and symptoms of hepatitis, primary liver cancer, or metastatic tumor. In this case report, we present a 58-year-old lady with poor performance status who presented with obstructive jaundice, epigastric pain, and bilious vomiting. Abdominal imaging revealed a large hepatic mass that was pathologically confirmed primary hepatic diffuse large B-cell lymphoma without bone marrow involvement. Because of severe jaundice, she was managed with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, and prednisolone-based therapy but succumbed to neutropenic fever following chemotherapy.
