Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is the second most common malignancy in HIV- seropositive individuals. When this neoplasm occurs in the oral cavity, it typically presents as a painful, ulcerated, necrotic mass and is frequently misdiagnosed as another pathologic process. This report details a case of oral non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in an HIV-seropositive man and reviews the clinical and microscopic features, differential diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
