Malignancies have rarely been reported in patients with ankylosing spondylitis either as a complication of therapy or de novo. Here we report a 37 years male with ankylosing spondylitis who developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma during the course of his illness. (J Assoc Physicians India 2002;50:836-837)
