The most common subtype of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma. Presentation of the extra-nodal type of Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma is common in stomach, bone, CNS and liver but in a very rare condition, it can happen in the maxillofacial muscles accompanying neurologic symptoms. An 83 years old man with nasolabial area swelling was referred to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department. After a thorough examination, soft tissue benign and malignant tumors were proposed. An incisional biopsy was done for the patient under local anesthesia. Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma was reported by pathology department. Due to non-surgical approach for lymphoma masses, the patient was referred to the oncologist and was treated with R-CHOP chemotherapy protocol for 8 sessions. The mass was disappeared after 3 sessions of chemotherapy. After 4 years follow-up, no recurrence was seen. A thorough examination of pathologic lesions considering the rarities especially in head and neck region is the key factor for providing the patients appropriate treatment modalities and also preventing misdiagnosis and treatment.
