Methods & Materials: This descriptive study was conducted on medical records of 55 patients presented lymphoma, 9 cases with Hodgkin’s disease (HD) and 46 cases with Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL), mainly for involvement of cervico-facial tissues and lymphadenopathy in cancer department of Iman Khomaini Hospital (2003). Data was analysed by using SPSS 11 statistical software.

Results: Data revealed that the mean age in patients with HD was 47±7.18 and in NHL, 55±18 years old. The most site of lymphadenopathy was observed in the neck (88.8 in HD and 56.5 in NHL). In 17.4% of patients with NHL, lymphadenopathy was found in submandibular, parotid and submental regions. According to the staging, 61% of patients were in stages I and II.
