Abstract

Hodgkin's lymphoma with its primary manifestation in the parotid gland is an exceedingly rare entity and seldom described in the literature. The vast majority of lymphoma occurs within lymph nodes. Lymphoma of parotid glands are typically a manifestation of systemic disease processes. This case report describes a parotid gland mass as a first symptom of Hodgkin's lymphoma. The patient underwent surgical excision and chemotherapy. The final diagnosis was established after an excisional biopsy and immunohistochemical staining.
