We report a non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma arising adjacent to a chronically infected revision total hip arthroplasty presenting as malignant hypercalcemia 12 years after original implantation. We believe that this is only the fifth case of lymphoma associated with a metal implant to be reported in the English literature.
