REYNA-VILLASMIL, Eduardo  y  PEREZ-ORTIZ, Viorkis. Primary ovarian non-Hodgkin lymphoma: Case report. Rev. peru. ginecol. obstet. [online]. 2018, vol.64, n.1, pp.107-111. ISSN 2304-5132.

Ovarian lymphomas are rare. Those presenting as a pelvic mass with initial manifestations are even rarer. Inaccurate or delayed diagnosis is often due to lesions resembling ovarian cancer and may lead to a poor outcome. We report the case of a 48-year-old female presenting with abdominal pain. Preoperative ultrasound and computed tomography showed a heterogeneous cystic mass. Laparotomy revealed a right adnexal mass of ovarian origin. Total hysterectomy, bilateral oophoro-salpingectomy, and partial omentectomy were performed. There was no evidence that the tumor had spread beyond the ovary. The diagnosis of primary nonHodgkin lymphoma of the ovary was done by histopathological examination along with immunohistochemistry of the excised tissue. The patient received six cycles of chemotherapy. After an 18-month follow-up, the patient continues free of disease.
