Oral manifestations are present in about 3 to 5 percent of cases of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) and an oral tongue lesion is rarely the initial manifestation of NHL. Every year, at the Gujarat Cancer & Research Institute about 13,000 cases are registered with the head and neck cancer comprising of 2,300 cases. A case is presented of a 30 year old female patient with NHL of the oral tongue (anterior 2/3) without visceral or lymphnode involvement. the diagnosis of NHL, being suspicious on biopsy, was confirmed with cytologic and histopathological study following a wide excision of the tumour. The prognosis of NHL seems to be related to the tumour stage, tumour aggressiveness and its response to treatment. Rarity of the disease, successful management of the case and review of the literature are presented.
