ABSTRACTLymphomas are a group of heterogeneous diseases that originate from the lymphoreticuloendothelial system. They are classified in Hodgkin´s lymphoma (HL) and non Hodgkin´s lymphoma (NHL). The latter are divided into Burkitt´s lymphoma: 50 to 90%, lymphoblastic lymphoma: 5 to 30%, B cells difused lymphoma: 5 to 16%, giant cells anaplasic lymphoma: 5 to 15 % and other peripheric T cells lymphomas: 2 to 15 %. Stomatologic manifestations of lymphomas may be primary, due to the disease; secondary manifestations are related to their treatment; tertiary manifestartions are some of which are fungal, such as Aspergillus.
