Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) represents a group of malignancies of the lymphatic system which are characterized by uncontrolled proliferation of B- or T-lymphocytes. NHL may affect the musculoskeletal system in 5-25% of the patients. In this case, we present a case of a patient who underwent surgery, in which a soft tissue mass was removed from the popliteal cavity of the right knee. After a series of examinations, it was considered to be a follicular B-cell NHL of the knee which was successfully treated with radiation therapy.
