Cutaneous lymphomas are lymphocyte proliferations. from cutaneous lymphoid tissue, without nodal, medullary, or visceral location. Their clinical presentation is quite polymorphic, and cellulitis is one of the modes of revelation, particularly forehead and neck location. They have no portal of entry and are resistant to treatment. Diagnosis is based on histology, and biopsies must be taken if lymphoma is suspected. The treatment is radio and chemotherapy, and the evolution depends on the tumoral stage. We report a case of cervical cellulitis revealing a cutaneous lymphoma in a 43-year-old male patient. The diagnosis was proved by multiple biopsies, performed because there was no clinical improvement in spite of an aggressive and adequate antibiotherapy.
