B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LBL) rarely occurs in the oral cavity (3.5% of all intra-oral malignant tumors). Few cases of B-LBL mandibular bone involvement have been reported.


We report the case of a 30-year-old female patient presenting with a single swelling of the left mandibular region, having grown for several weeks. Maxillo-facial CT and MRI showed inflammation of soft tissues and muscles without initial signs of osteitis, thus noncontributive to the diagnosis. A biopsy allowed diagnosing an intra-oral bone lymphoblastic lymphoma. The patient was referred to the hematooncology unit for treatment.


Jaw localization of non Hodgkin's lymphoma is rare. Clinical symptomatology and radiological signs are poorly contributive. The diagnosis relies on a histopathological analysis.
