Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the head and neck has been described in several sites including the larynx, the pharynx, Waldeyer's ring, the nose and paranasal sinuses. NHL of the temporal region has not been previously described. We describe a 65-year-old woman with a diffuse swelling of the right temporal region. A histological diagnosis of NHL was made following complete excision of the lesion. No further treatment was given and there was no evidence of recurrence at six months.
