Abstract

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) of Nasopharynx accounts for 8% of all the tumours affecting the region. It creates a dilemma for the clinician as well as the pathologist. Maltoma (MALT) of Nasopharynx is a low grade lymphoma which is generally slow growing in nature. Biopsy and immunohistochemistry is vital in diagnosis of this disease. However it is capable of causing cranial nerve palsy by local invasion. A high degree of suspicion is needed for the clinician to accurately diagnose this rare condition

Keywords: Nasopharyngeal Lymphoma, Maltoma, Immunohistochemistry.
