Enlargement of peripheral nerves is unspecific and can occur in inflammation, different types of nerve tumors and in malignancies. This contribution aims to describe the involvement of cranial nerves conjunction with lymphoma by different mechanisms. As tumorous involvement of CN in lymphoma is rare, only small case series, individual case reports and summaries can be used as sources.
