Abstract

Most non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients present with nodal involvement; nevertheless, extra-nodal involvement accounts for 20-30% of the cases. Common extra-nodal sites are gastrointestinal tract also head and neck region. Intramuscular lymphoma is an uncommon extra-nodal site of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Intramuscular lymphoma at the head and neck is even especially rare. Intramuscular lymphoma occurring in the extremities and pelvis region are much more common. This article reported a case of 49-years-old Thai male who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin presenting and had mass at left sternocleidomastoid muscle.
