Description:This image depicts the right region of an 8-year old girl’s oral cavity revealing the presence of a neoplastic lesion involving the first and second deciduous molars, which turned out to be lymphosarcoma.

Lymphosarcoma is a malignant cancer involving the lymphatic system, and is characterized by the proliferation of atypical lymphocytes. Lymphosarcoma does not included Hodgkin’s disease, and is therefore, also referred to as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Lymphoma is a general term for a group of cancers that originate in the lymph system. The two primary types of lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma, which spreads in an orderly manner from one group of lymph nodes to another; and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which spreads through the lymphatic system in a non-orderly manner.
