 We report a 30 year old woman who presented with a painless preauricular mass of two months duration. Superficial parotidectomy was performed for the patient. Histological examination and immunohistochemical findings were in favor of mixed cellularity Hodgkin’s lymphoma (MCHD). According to this diagnosis the patient received local radiotherapy and during 4 months of follow-up no recurrence was seen. To our knowledge only one such case has been reported in the English literature to date by Uchinuma in 1988.
