Anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma is a very rare disease in childhood. The most common locations are lymph nodes and skin, while the external ear location is uncommon. We present the case of a 6-year-old child with an earlobe tumour. Surgical treatment was performed and the anatomopathological results showed anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Radiological tests were negative and there was no systemic involvement.
