Abstract

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a group of neoplasm affecting the lymphoid system. Follicular lymphoma is typically a slow-growing, indolent form of NHL that accounts for 1/3 of all NHL. It is one of the B-cell lymphomas, generally characterized by multiple relapses after responses to a variety of therapies. When lymphoma relapses, it may occur in the same or a different part of the body from where it occurred originally. Recurrence in the primary site is most common but recurrence in other parts is rarely observed. We experienced a rare case of 70-year-old woman who complained of swelling in the left mouth floor and was diagonosed with a recurrent NHL. It recurred in the sublingual gland after a complete remission of the follicular lymphoma.
