Abstract: Of all head and neck tumors, 0.5% to 0.8% of them are localized in the parapharyngeal space. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas in this site are extremely rare. There are described in literature as either isolated cases or small series of tumors of that space. We are showing a case of a younger man presented with the recent facial nerve paralysis, hearing loss, otalgia and on the examination seen bulged right side of the soft palate and medialization of the pharyngeal wall. The biopsy was performed transorally. The pathohistology finding described a large B cell non-Hodgkin s lymphoma. Usually, the parapharyngeal tumors are benign and the surgery is the treatment of choice. In this case patient underwent chemotherapy. We point out, although rare, extranodal non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas are possible pathological findings in the head and neck. Because of different treatment it is of great importance to know when we deal with this kind of pathology.

Abstract: Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma belongs to group of lymphoid neoplasm, which may be a presenting symptom in HIV patient who is immuno compromised.The close association of NHL with HIV infection is formally recognized by the fact that NHL is designated as an Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome defining condition. Oral involvement primarily is not so common in these patients but if involved, they often involve gingiva or palatal region. Here we report a case of Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) with HIV who presented with primarily involvement of gingiva & palate by NHL.

Abstract: El linfoma no Hodgkin (LNH) ocupa el segundo lugar en frecuencia entre las neoplasias vinculadas con el sida, los senos maxilares, la cavidad nasal y el seno etmoidal son los sitios más comunes (33%). Aproximadamente el 3% de los casos definidos como sida presentan LNH en el inicio del curso de infección por VIH. Los LNH parecen el resultado de una proliferación incontrolada de precursores linfoides inmaduros que han perdido la capacidad de diferenciarse y que se acumulan progresivamente en el huésped. La mayoría de pacientes tienen conteo relativamente bajo de células CD4 (100-200 células/mm3). El VIH generalmente infecta a los linfocitos T, cuya pérdida de la función reguladora lleva a una hipergamaglobulinemia e hiperplasia policlonal de células B. El tratamiento de los LNH de cabeza y cuello normalmente consiste en radioterapia, quimioterapia y cirugía o una combinación de éstas. Cuando existen lesiones primarias en tejidos blandos orales, son generalmente asintomáticas, de carácter relativamente blando, aparecen como un aumento de volumen difuso y afectan principalmente mucosa yugal, encía y porción posterior del paladar duro. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is the second most common AIDS-related malignancy. The maxillary sinuses, nasal cavity and ethmoid sinus are the most common sites of NHL (33%). In about 3% of cases defined as AIDS, NHL is present at the start of the course of HIV infection. NHL seems to result from uncontrolled proliferation of immature lymphoid precursors that have lost the ability to differentiate and thus accumulate progressively in the host. Most patients have a relatively low CD4 cell count (100-200 cells/mm3). HIV often infects T lymphocytes and the loss of T-cell regulatory function leads to hypergammaglobulinemia and polyclonal B-cell hyperplasia The treatment of head and neck NHL usually involves radiation, chemotherapy and surgery or a combination thereof. Primary NHL lesions in the oral soft tissues are usually asymptomatic, relatively soft in consistency, and appear as a diffuse increase in volume that affects mainly the buccal mucosa, gums and posterior portion of the hard palate.

Abstract: lymphomas of the bladder are rare lesions, representing approximately 0.2% of the primary neoplastic lesions and approximately 1.8% of the secondary lesions in this organ. the authors report the case of a 41-year old patient with secondary lymphoma of the bladder occurring 2 years after treatment for non-hodgkin lymphoma, diagnosed by biopsy of cervical lymph node, and analyze the clinical and prognostic aspects of bladder lymphomas.

Abstract: Background: There are only a few reports that exist regarding primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the genital tract. In this article, one case of primary B-cell type non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) of the cervix is presented. Case history: A 45 year-old woman presented bloody vaginal discharge. Upon vaginal examination, the cervix was found to be enlarged. Cervical biopsy revealed B-cell type non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The patient was treated with CHOP chemotherapy. Conclusion: Systemic chemotherapy and radiation are recommended and effective treatments for genital tract B-cell type non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Abstract: Lymphomas, although rare, constitute the third most common malignancy of the oral cavity, following squamous cell carcinoma and salivary gland adenocarcinomas. Most oral lymphomas are Non-Hodgkin and derive from B-lymphocytes. They usually appear as soft tissue masses of the palate or gingiva. Sometimes they mimic common oral diseases such as inflammatory or reactive lesions and therefore pose a challenge to proper and timely diagnosis. A case of a follicular Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, appearing as a swelling of the maxilla, initially considered to be of inflammatory/infectious cause is presented. The patient had already undergone antibiotic therapy and extraction of the adjacent tooth without resolution of the lesion, at the time an incisional biopsy was decided. The clinician needs to always maintain a high index of suspicion when coming across diffuse swellings that despite the fact that they resemble common pathoses, do not respond to conventional therapy or appear unusual in some way.
Autonomic dysfunction in Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. A paraneoplastic syndrome?

Hematology Reports , 2010, DOI: 10.4081/hr.2010.e8
Abstract: We wanted to determine whether autonomic dysfunction in patients with lymphoma is related to chemotherapy or represent a paraneoplastic syndrome. 40 patients with current or cured Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 40 healthy controls, matched for age, gender, hypertension and diabetes mellitus underwent autonomic evaluation (Deep Breath, Valsalva Maneuver, Hand Grip, Lying to Standing, Tilt Test). Current patients also suffering from diabetes or hypertension, or still on chemotherapy revealed autonomic changes, while cured or healthy subjects did not. Autonomic dysfunction in lymphoma is a transient manifestation of a paraneoplastic syndrome.

Abstract: Introduction: Rhinoscleroma, a rare nasal granulomatous disease, is caused by Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis. The nose is the primary occurrence region. Nasal non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a rare cancer, and could be of T or B type. The rhinoscleroma and the nasal non-Hodgkin lymphoma present with nasal obstruction as the main symptom, and are part of the nasal granulomatosis differential diagnosis. Objective: To report the association of rhinoscleroma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the same patient, by remarking the importance of the nasal granulomatosis' differential diagnosis. Case Report: A forty-nine year old female patient that appeared with a one-month progressive nasal obstruction. Rhinoscopy showed papillomatous feature lesion in left middle meatus. The immunohistochemical analysis confirmed rhinoscleroma. The patient was duly treated with total remission of the lesion. Ten months after, she returned with the same symptoms, but the histologic study confirmed non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Final Comments: Both pathologies may cause more severe nasal symptoms and complications. The early diagnostic enables the choice for the right treatment and contributes for the prognosis. The immunohistochemical study was essential for the diagnostic differentiation.

Abstract: Primary non-Hodgkins′s lymphoma is a very uncommon lesion, accounting for 0.6% in jaws. As the lesions frequently resemble other disease such as chronic osteomyelitis, odontogenic or any secondary neoplasms, further evaluation and histopathologic examination allow early identification for appropriate treatment. The purpose of this case report is to describe a rare case of non-Hodgkin′s lymphoma of the mandible, explore the diagnosis and workup based on immunohistochemistry.
