This is a case report of rosette formation in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in the bone marrow. A 66 year old female on treatment for metastatic papillary carcinoma thyroid and non - Hodgkin's lymphoma of the nodular small cleaved cell type was found to have bone marrow infiltration by a low grade B cell lymphoma. Bone marrow aspirate, imprint and trephine biopsy showed rosettes of the abnormal lymphoid cells. The associations of papillary carcinoma thyroid, hyperglobulinemia and retroperitoneal fibrosis in this case which explain the histogenesis of rosette formation are discussed.
