Abstract

The parotid tumor which presents as solid and cystic mass on computed tomography, shows hot uptake on technetium-99m scan and oxyphilic oncocytic cells and intermingled lymphocytes on fine needle aspiration usually suggests Warthin's tumor. We have treated a patient with such preoperative findings of Warthin's tumor. However, the pathologic diagnosis of the surgical specimen was mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma.
