Abstract

We report a case of a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the maxilla. A patient presented with diffuse swelling of the right maxillary region following the extraction of an upper right maxillary tooth. The patient was referred for cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to visualize the area in question in three dimensions. A massive destructive maxillary lesion was noted on CBCT examination suggestive of an aggressive lesion highly suspicious for a malignancy. A subsequent biopsy and immunochemistry were useful in confirming the diagnosis.
