The lymphomas are a group of lymphoproliferative disorders that can be divided histologically in the two main groups of Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. They sometimes present in the head and neck, and the diagnosis and management require a multidisciplinary approach. An unusual case is described presenting at an advanced stage because of patient delay in seeking medical help.
