Pseudolymphoma is an inflammatory response that results in a lymphomatous-appearing but benign accumulation of inflammatory cells. It may exhibit histological and sometimes clinical features suggestive of malignant lymphoma. Unlike lymphomas, pseudolymphomas usually undergo spontaneous remission. Causes include idiopathic, drugs, contact allergens, photosensitivity, insect bites, scabies and infections. The term "pseudo" means "not real", and "lymphoma" means "a cancerous tumor of lymphocytes".
