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.
