Abstract

Mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma is included in extra nodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma. MALTomas are predominantly seen in adults and rarely reported in children & adolescents particularly in immunodeficiency state. Here, we are reporting third case of MALT lymphoma of minor salivary glands of lip in a 9-year-old immuno-competent child. The patient had firm mass on right upper lip. PET Scan showed few avid cervical lymph nodes. Microscopic sections and Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated infiltration by a tumor consistent with MALToma. Child was successfully treated with complete resection followed by chemotherapy with no recurrence at 6 month.
