We describe a case of a diabetic man with a 40-year history of chronic tuberculous empyema presented with fever, chest pain and bulging soft tissue of the right chest wall. CT scan revealed a huge chest wall mass showing extensive necrosis with air-bubbles and destruction of the ribs. Decortication and extirpation of the chest wall mass were performed, and histopathologic examination confirmed diffused large cell type non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
