Lymphomas of the gastrointestinal tract are usually secondary. Primary rectal lymphoma is very rare by virtue of its location. We present here a 60 years old lady diagnosed as primary rectal diffuse large B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma managed operatively. The optimum management of this entity is still much debated. Keywords: Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; primary; rectum.
