A self-consistent mode-coupling theory is used to calculate the coefficient of self-diffusion in a three-dimensional classical one-component plasma subjected to an external magnetic field. For asymptotically large fields a Bohm-like behavior is found for diffusion in the plane perpendicular to the magnetic field. The experimental consequences of these results are discussed.
