Abstract

Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas are low-grade extranodal B-cell lymphomas that may involve various sites in the head and neck including the thyroid, salivary, and lacrimal glands. In particular, primary salivary gland MALT lymphoma is rare, with sublingual gland tumors especially rarer and frequently malignant. In Korea, there has been no reported case of MALT lymphoma in sublingual glands. Here we report a case of a MALT lymphoma in the sublingual gland.
