Abstract

Marginal zone B-cell lymphomas are indolent lymphomas that arise from the memory B cells in the marginal zone of lymphoid tissue. They include mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, splenic marginal zone lymphoma, and nodal marginal zone lymphoma. These three subtypes share morphologic and immunophenotypic features, but can be distinguished by primary site at presentation. Recently, we experienced a rare case of primary nodal marginal zone lymphoma that arose from an intra-parotid lymph node. So we report this case with a review of literature.
