This case report highlights the occurrence of B- cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (B-LBL) as a solitary cutaneous lesion without an existing systemic involvement and should be kept in the differentials while dealing with cases presenting with a similar clinical picture. We report the case of a 13-year-old girl who presented with a painful, progressively enlarging swelling in right zygomatico-temporal region, clinically simulated a deep fungal infection/ granulomatous lesion and turned out to be a case of B-LBL without any systemic involvement on further work up. This case is being reported to emphasize that B-LBL should be considered as a differential for an otherwise benign appearing persistent lesion in the head and neck region.
