A 48-year-old man introduced with painless left scrotal swelling. He was recognized with PTL after orchiectomy, and the histological kind was diffuse giant B-cell lymphoma. For staging of lymphoma, positron emission tomography was carried out, which revealed uptake in the best atrium and early cardiac metastasis inside simply 2 months after orchiectomy. He underwent 6 cycles of systemic chemotherapy that consisted of rituximab, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone (R-CHOP). He additionally obtained central nervous system prophylaxis four occasions with weekly IT-MTX throughout the first 2 cycles of R-CHOP.
