Lymphoblastic Lymphoma presenting as bilateral ovarian mass in an adolescent girl (case report)



abstract

BACKGROUND:

Lymphomas rarely involve the genital tract and Non Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) presenting as ovarian tumor is rare. Precursor B cell lymphoblastic lymphoma arising from ovary is extremely rare and only 5 cases have been reported in literature.

CASE:

A 15 year old girl presented with bilateral ovarian mass which on biopsy proved to be pre B lymphoblastic lymphoma. She was treated with BFM 90 protocol and she is alive in complete remission for more than 10 years.

SUMMARY:

NHL of the ovary should also be considered as a differential diagnosis in adolescent and young adults with ovarian masses. Attempt to make a preoperative diagnosis is crucial since ovarian NHL respond well to chemotherapy and has a good prognosis.
