We present a rare case of anaplastic large cell lymphoma of the bone in the leg of a child. The patient initially presented with suspected osteomyelitis of the fibula and was treated by antibiotics without apparent success. Thereafter, an open biopsy of the lesion was performed and the correct diagnosis was established. This rare case demonstrates the difficulties that a treating physician meets in establishing the correct diagnosis in a child presenting with limping. A review of the pertinent literature is introduced.
