Large cell lymphoma associated with prosthetic joint debris.

Abstract

Soft tissue reactions to materials in joint prostheses include discoloration, fibrosis, florid histiocytic reaction, and granulomatous inflammation with foreign body giant cell reaction. Clinical manifestations include pain and swelling. We report a case of temporomandibular joint Proplast-Teflon prosthesis, followed by the development of large cell lymphoma in the left parotid gland 10 years after joint replacement. While it is unclear whether the implant directly contributed to the development of lymphoma, this association has not been previously documented, prompting this report.
