Abstract

Primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma (PCFCL) accounts for the majority of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas. We report a 60-year-old womanwith PCFCL. She had a red nodule (25 × 25 mm) on the right side of the lower jaw. She was diagnosed with PCFCL by skin biopsy. And then, she was treated with radiation therapy (total 30.6 Gy), which completely eliminated the nodule. Our case suggests that radiation therapy may be a first choice for PCFCL patients with a solitary lesion or localized lesions.
