Here such case is presented to share our experience with review of literature. Methods: It was a male patient presented in emergency with gradually progressing shortness of breath (SOB) and had direct laryngoscopy revealing mass in larynx and underwent tracheostomy. He was diagnosed as diffuse large B cell (DLBC) NHL on laryngeal biopsy and immunohistochemistry and referred to us in MINAR cancer hospital, Multan for further management. Results: The patient was treated with standard multidrug regime chemotherapy followed by external radiotherapy.
