|Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma is a rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is divided into nasal, non-nasal, and aggressive/leukemia subtypes, according to anatomic origin and clinical manifestations, with each subtype carrying a different prognosis. We present a case of primary cardiac natural killer/T-cell lymphoma with extension to other organs in a 38-year-old man, to highlight the role of imaging in categorizing nasal versus non-nasal types. This distinction has relevant implications for patient care because the non-nasal type has a much lower survival rate.
