60-year-old male patient presented with dysphagia and a change in voice for eight months. It was established after Direct laryngoscopy surgery and biopsy, that it was a low-grade B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The primary lesion is resolved with Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisolone regimen. Four months later, patient presented with a discharge and maggots at the tracheostomy site. Ifosfamide, Etoposide, Carboplatin was started after a secondary recurrence of disease progression. Hereby we infer this is an unusual case presentation, myiasis with lymphoma recurrence and tough exacting to the otolaryngologist as there are more chances of misdiagnosing as squamous cell carcinoma..
