Abstract

Lymphomas of the face and neck encompass lymphomatous processes affecting Waldeyer’s ring, the facial structures, the thyroid gland, the salivary glands, cervical lymph nodes, the larynx, and the ear. Lymphomas of these sites are fairly common, accounting for 15% of all ex-tranodal non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL) for Freeman [212]. Extranodal sites almost always correspond to NHL, whereas adenopathies are the most frequent manifestation of cervicofacial Hodgkin’s disease (HD). This situation is reflected in the fact that Ennuyer’s 1961 literature review [187] cited only 33 extranodal sites of HD. HD of the face and neck is thus essentially a nodal pathology; NHL usually presents as an extranodal cervicofacial lesion.
