Abstract

It is well known that non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of various histologic types, including Burkitt's lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (diffuse welldifferentiated lymphocytic lymphoma), frequently appears in the oral cavity's soft tissues, including the soft palate and Waldeyer's ring. An unusual case of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma primarily with tonsillar involvement was evaluated. The clinical course of the disease was presented with the current literature search.
