Abstract

The prevalence of cheek lymphoma, especially a mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (MALT), is very rare. Non-specific symptoms and image findings of cheek lymphoma may mimic benign entities and make it difficult to diagnose. In this case report, we present a case of MALT lymphoma of the cheek mimicking benign entities on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
