A 87-year-old woman was run down by a hit-and-run driver and cured of malignant lymphoma
A 87-year-old woman was run down by a hit-and-run driver while riding her bicycle. An acute computed tomography (CT) showed no fractures or internal bleedings but revealed an asymptomatic tumour in the colon transversum. During operation, a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma was resected. Subsequent positron emission tomography/CT and bone marrow examination revealed no dissemination. No chemotherapy or radiation therapy was given. The patient was seen in the outpatient clinic every six months, and after two and a half year she is still in complete remission with a normal haemoglobin level.
