Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a tumor which occurs with diverse clinical presentation. A 19- year-old male presented with a swelling in the oral cavity, was misdiagnosed as periodontal infection of the tooth. Biopsy and subsequent immunophenotypic analysis helped in the diagnosis of B cell lymphoma with T cell rich areas.
