A 56-year-old man with metastatic malignant lymphoma of the maxillary sinus from a testicular primary lesion is reported. The patient had had an orchidectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy for malignant lymphoma of his left testis 3 years earlier. Histological diagnosis was non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, B-cell, diffuse large cell type, consistent with that of the testicular lymphoma. Local radiotherapy followed by 3 courses of general chemotherapy resulted in complete response. However, the patient died 1 year and 8 months after presentation due to multiple relapse.

Key words:
