Abstract

Objective: Primary lymphoma originating from the female genital tract (PLFGT) is extremely rare and so we wanted to present clinical and PET / CT findings of a case with PLFGT.


Case report: PET / CT images of a 57-year-old woman with abdominal pain revealed a hypermetabolic mass in the pelvic region, involving the uterus and cervix, extending to the bilateral adnexal region. Histopathological evaluation of the mass was determined as follicular lymphoma.


Conclusion: Although PLFGT is extremely rare, the possibility of lymphoma should also be kept in mind in patients with gynecological mass.


Keywords: extranodal lymphoma, primary lymphoma of the female genital tract, PET/CT.
