Introduction: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) worldwide, accounting for approximately 22% of newly diagnosed cases of B-cell NHL. Determining the prognosis of patients and choosing the appropriate treatment regimen has been discussed in many studies. In this article, we examine a case of a patient with diffuse large B cell lymphoma with very rare extensive metastases in PET-CT scan, who did not respond to the first line of treatment proposed in the valid guidelines, but the patient responded to the second line of treatment (R regimen -ICE) has been very significant.
Conclusion: This case shows that probably in cases where there is extensive involvement in the patient's PET-CT scan and the patient's prognosis is considered poor, IPI, R-ICE regimen can be used first line.
