Primary lymphomas of the salivary gland are rare. The most common subtype is MALT lymphoma. MALT lymphoma has an indolent clinical course, and patients often present with a prolonged history. Evaluations of parotid masses begin initially with radiological imaging, but pathological and histological examination remains the mainstay of definitive diagnosis. This case describes a primary non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the parotid gland in a healthy 32-year-old male. This case report will evaluate the prevalence of primary MALT lymphoma and discuss the possible presentation.
