Malignant lymphoma is a neoplastic proliferation of cells in the lymphoreticular system and deviled largely as Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma occurs primarily in lymph nodes and is rare found in extralymphatic organs. The most frequently affected extranodal sites area head and neck, gastrointestinal tract, followed by bladder, skin, brain, eye and bone. Primary lymphomas arising in salivary glands are very uncommon. Lymphomas in salivary glands represented 1.7 ~ 5% of all reported salivary neoplasms. Recently authors experienced one case of primary malignant lymphoma in carotid gland and report that with a brief review of literature.
