Abstract

A 64-year-old woman was referred to our hospital, exhibiting xerostomia and complaining of a feeling foreign body in her tongue. A submucosal swelling on the left side in the base of the tongue was subsequenctly resected. Histopathological examination showed a marginal zone B-cell lymphoma of MALT type. Treatment consisted of local radiotherapy. To our knowledge, only one case of MALT lymphoma in the base of tongue has been reported. The clinical behavior of MALT lymphomas is quite distinct from other types and requires proper recognition in order to prevent misdiagnosis or overtreatment.
