In the anterior portion of the inferior turbinate, immune response originates actively from sustained allergenic stimulation. This response can lead to the development of a hyperplastic mass on the anterior portion of the inferior turbinate. The majority of such cases are benign chronic inflammatory lymphoid hyperplasia, but sometimes lymphoma occurs by malignant lymphocyte proliferation. The authors of this study evaluated seven patients who had a small mass on the inferior turbinate. As the result of excisional biopsy, MALT lymphoma was diagnosed in two patients and lymphoid hyperplasia in five. Immunohistochemistry is important for differential diagnosis. Complete excision was performed for initial diagnosis and treatment. Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma patients need to be evaluated for metastasis.
