Primary non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the gingiva: acase report and review of the literature

Primary non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the gingiva: acase report and review of the literature Up to 40 % of cases of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL) occur with exclusive extranodal presentation, and involvement of the oral cavity is very rare. We report the case of a 40-year-old woman who presented with a gingival mass that was diagnosed as diffuse large B‑cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The patient was treated with chemoradiotherapy, thus, achieving a complete remission, and the patient is currently free of disease. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png memo - Magazine of European Medical Oncology Springer Journals

Abstract

Up to 40 % of cases of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL) occur with exclusive extranodal presentation, and involvement of the oral cavity is very rare. We report the case of a 40-year-old woman who presented with a gingival mass that was diagnosed as diffuse large B‑cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The patient was treated with chemoradiotherapy, thus, achieving a complete remission, and the patient is currently free of disease.
