ABSTRACT
Metastasis of primary tumors to the jaws from distant sites of the body is rare.In the majority of cases, the primary malignancy is already known at the time ofadmission while the occult primary may be detected only later. Cellular malignanciesespecially those of haematopoetic origin, diagnosed in the oral and maxillofacialregion are usually found to be secondaries from various locations in the body.However non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) appearing in the mandible subsequent toa primary tumour elsewhere in the body is scantily reported in the literature.We report a case of relapse of previously diagnosed testicular non-Hodgkin'slymphoma in the mandible. The patient had undergone treatment for primarytesticular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in the left testis one year ago. He remainedsymptom-free until the appearance of a tumour in the mandible. It is to be noted thatthere was no sign of metastasis elsewhere in the body other than the present lesion.
