Case Study: Rare Case of Mantle Cell Lymphoma With Extranodal Involvement in the Foot

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that commonly affects extranodal sites. The most commonly affected sites are the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, Waldeyer’s ring, lung, and pleura. We report the case of an 80-year-old diabetic male, in MCL remission, who presented with a small dome-shaped nodule on his calf and an ipsilateral second digit non-healing ulceration after a traumatic fall.
