Abstract
Primary malignant lymphomas in the female genital tract are rare, but when it occurs, the cervix or the ovary are more common site than the uterine corpus. Most common symptoms are abnormal vaginal bleeding but sometimes it is symptom free. Due to rarity of primary malignant lymphoma, the standard treatments are not yet established, but rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone chemotherapy after the surgery is general executed. We present a case of primary malignant lymphoma originating from endometrium with spine involvement.
