Primary or sec­on­dary spi­nal involve­ment of lym­pho­ma is a rare­ly report­ed ­entity. An eleven-year-old girl with pri­mary cer­vi­cal dumb­bell non-Hodgkin’s lym­pho­ma (NHL) was pre­sent­ed. We could not found any such ­growth pat­tern of pri­mary or sec­on­dary NHL’S in the lit­er­a­ture. For this rea­son, we ­reviewed short­ly per­ti­nent lit­er­a­ture and dis­cussed the path­o­phy­sio­log­ic, diag­nos­tic and prog­nos­tic fea­tures of the ­lesion with treat­ment modal­ities.
