Nasal-type T/natural killer (NK)-cell lymphoma, a distinct clinicopathological entity is highly associated with Epstein-Barr virus which shows an aggressive course. We present a CD56 + nasal-type T/(NK)-cell lymphoma case with systemic manifestations of rhabdomyolysis and polyserositis who died of multiorgan failure shortly after his admission to hospital in spite of adequate chemotherapy and supportive care.
