Lymphomas arising from the parotid gland are rare entity and often misdiagnosed and overlooked clinically as well as pathologically. This diagnosis should always be kept in mind when a patient presents with a non-tender mass in this gland, since it may save the patient from undergoing unnecessary diagnostic procedures, thereby prompting the appropriate medical treatment.
Key words: Parotid, lymphoma, rare.
