We report a case involving a 64 year old lady with bilateral pathological fractures of the neck of the femur secondary to Low Grade Splenic Marginal Zone Lymphoma, a pathology that has not previously been described in clinical literature. This particular case also highlights the value of the diagnosis and management of patients presenting with subtle and unusual symptoms, and supports the current guidance of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence regarding the investigation of patients with suspected pathological neck of femur fracture.
