Primary lymphoma of bone (PLB) is an uncommon entity and is extremely rare in the foot and ankle. In this case, PLB was identified from the bone specimen after a bunionectomy of the first and fifth metatarsals. The diagnosis was confirmed with pathologic analysis, genetic karyotyping, positron emission and computed tomography scans, and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). We felt that reporting this case was essential due to the rarity of its pedal occurrence and the lack of preoperative signs or symptoms.
