GOTERI, Gaia et al. Primary malt limphoma of the tongue. Med. oral patol. oral cir. bucal (Ed.impr.) [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.5, pp.459-463. ISSN 1698-4447.

Primitive malignant lymphoma mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) on the tongue are rare entities. We report here a case of an old woman (80 years old) with a tumor in the dorsum of the tongue, which was histologically diagnosed as an extra-nodal marginal B cell lymphoma. An inflammatory reaction resembling myoepithelial sialoadenitis was observed in the minor salivary glands adjacent at the tumour, suggesting a possible derivation of the lymphoma from a previous reactive process of unknown origin.

Keywords : Salivary gland lymphoma; oral MALT lymphoma.
