HUMERES-SIGALA, Carlos et al. Extranodal Lymphoma of T / NK Cells in Oral Cavity. Case Report in Chile. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.4, pp.398-401. ISSN 0718-381X.

Extranodal T / NK cell lymphoma is an aggressive malignant neoplasm characterized by destruction of midline structures of the face such as the palate and nasal fossa. We present the case of a male patient, 48 years old, cocaine user, who consults at the Faculty of Dentistry of the Universidad de Chile in September of 2015 due to symptoms of dysphagia, rhinorrhea and presenting to the clinical examination an ulcerated tumor which compromises hard and soft palate, a month of evolution. Diagnosis of T / NK cell lymphoma is confirmed with a battery of immunohistochemical tests. This pathology, although infrequent, should always be considered within the differential diagnoses in ulcerated tumors of this location.

Keywords : lymphoma; oral manifestations; killers cells.
