Abstract

A 70-year-old woman with a history of bilateral primary knee osteoarthritis presented with a left knee wound complication, a non-Hodgkins lymphoma, after bilateral total knee arthroplasties. After exploring several etiologies, the evidence in this unusual case suggests a coincidental preexisting lymphoma.
