Abstract:   (1307 Views)
Introduction: Extra-nodal exposition of T-cell non-hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is extremely rare, and is frequently observed in patients with immune system dysfunction. Peripheral T-cell lymphoma does not express CD56 is rare. Malignant lymphoma of the uvula is exceedingly unusual. The current study reported a case of peripheral T-cell lymphoma of the uvula in an immunecompetent patient.
Case presentation: The current study reported a case of peripheral T-cell lymphoma of the uvula in a 54-year-old male patient. The diagnosis was based on excisional biopsy and ancillary techniques. The patient was referred to the hemato-oncology ward for treatment.
Conclusion: Considering the fact that the presentation of peripheral T-cell NHL in uvula is uncommon, a high index of suspicion is necessary to diagnose this grave disease. To the best of authors` knowledge, this case is the third case of T-cell lymphoma of the uvula in the English literature.
