INTRODUCTION: Typically occurring in the sixth decade, extranodal Marginal Zone B cell lymphoma constitutes 0.4% of lymphomas and 3.6% of non-Hodgkins lymphomas (1). It is a mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma that manifests as monoclonal B cell proliferation from the bronchus associated lymphoid tissue (BALT). Leading associations are pulmonary amyloidosis, Sjogren's syndrome, smoking and HIV. Inhaled antigens are likely provocative, as the BALT participates in the lung's immune response. Its differential includes infection versus autoimmune disorder versus metastatic cancer.
