Primary Nonepithelial Malignancies
Primary lymphomas of lung are rare (less than 1% of lung tumors), and the majority of them are marginal zone B-cell lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissues (MALT) type. Diffuse large B-cell lymphomas comprise a small proportion (5–20%) of the primary lung lymphomas. Primary pulmonary Hodgkin lymphoma is very rare. Other lymphomas, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin types, may also involve lung as part of the systemic disease.
