Lymphomas occurring in the oral cavity are rare. They account only for about 2% of extra-nodal sites. Most of the lymphomas occur in the lymph nodes and in the oral cavity, the most commonly affected region is the Waldeyerâ€™s ring. Its occurrence in the mandibular gingiva is rare. Here, we describe a case of Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma manifested as a non-healing extraction socket in the mandibular right posterior region in a 62-year-old male patient.
