Abstract

Lymphomas are malignant lesions derived from proliferating lymphoid and/or reticuloendothelial cells and their derivatives.1-3 It is believed that most non-Hodgkin's lymphomas arise in a unifocal or multifocal pattern from nodal tissue and then spread to distant nodal and visceral sites.4 Lymphoma of the oral cavity is an uncommon finding,4-10 and the specific means by which these extranodal lymphomas occur has not been identified.3,7 Of the non-Hodgkin's lymphomas that occur in the oral cavity, 15% to 45% have occurred in the maxilla and mandible,8,11-13 with the mandible the less frequent site.9,14. In this article, we present a case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the mandible involving the inferior alveolar canal and mental foramen, with an unusual radiographic presentation. A review of the radiographic presentations of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the mandible is also presented.
