Abstract

Primary adrenal lymphoma is a malignant tumor that originates in lymph nodes and extranodal lymphoid tissues, but the adrenal gland has no lymphoid tissue, so the pathogenesis is not clear. NK/ T-cell lymphoma is a rapidly progressing hematological malignancy. Reports of primary adrenal NK/T-cell lymphoma are rare. On September 11, 2018, we first discovered a case of primary adrenal NK/T lymphoma with hemophagocytic syndrome as the first manifestation.
