Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is the most common lymphoma that presents in extranodal areas without lymphoid tissue. It occurs in <5% of cases in the jaws and the maxilla are more commonly involved than mandible. The most common symptom is that of a nonpathognomic swelling mimicking odontogenic pathology with a mobile tooth. The lesion usually gets aggravated after extraction and presents as a painful nonhealing socket with symptoms of paresthesia. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is the most common subtype and has a better prognosis and overall survival in patients. The treatment of NHL is by a combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We present a rare case report of occurrence of NHL in the least preferred site of mandible with nonhealing socket following extraction of mobile tooth, diagnosed on histopathology and confirmed by immunohistochemistry.
