Oral cavity non-Hodgkin lymphoma (OCL) is a rare condition that may be clinically and radiologically indistinguishable from other pathologies of the mouth.

Abstract

Oral cavity non-Hodgkin lymphoma (OCL) is a rare condition that may be clinically and radiologically indistinguishable from other pathologies of the mouth. A complete excision or adequate biopsy of the OCL may be difficult. Fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology has been successfully utilized in the pre-operative diagnosis of oral masses and in lymphoma involving other anatomical areas. Our experience with FNA pre-operative cytological diagnosis of 16 OCLs is reported herein.
