Lymphomas of the salivary glands are a rare entity, with an estimated incidence of 5%. The most frequent location is parotid gland, followed by the submandibular and sublingual. The majority of parotid lymphomas are non-Hodgkin's lymphoma NHL and are considered derived from mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT). Infrequently these cases have been reported and are often underdiagnosed for their presentation is relatively benign, localized behaving, slow growing, with several years of evolution. We report a case of parotid MALT lymphoma according to the clinical, histological and immunohistochemical characteristics of this tumor. In addition, a literature review of this case.
