Acute T- cell lymphoblastic lymphoma - A case report

J.O. Sumba, K.R. Sharma

Abstract


We highlight the case of a two year old female who presented with a two month history of left posterior auricular swelling. The swelling developed following trauma, was painless and progressively enlarging. After extensive evaluation the mass was noted to be an extramedullary presentation of Acute T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, which is rare. We decided to present this as a case report because of its unique presentation, diagnostic challenge and we also wish to highlight the importance of immunohistochemistry in diagnosis of malignancies.
