Abstract
Malignant ovarian lymphoma is a very rare entity and has a poor prognosis. A 32-year-old woman visited Taejon St, Mary`s hospital due to abdominal discomfort and pelvic mass. Under the impression of ovarian malignancy, total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingpo-ophorectomy, lymph node biopsy was done. Histopathologic and immunohistochemical study demonstrated the tumor to be Burkitt`s lymphoma of the ovary with involvement of the uterus, tubes, and bone marrow. Now she got one cycle of CHOP(cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, prednisolone) chemotherapy and then follow up via OPD. We have reported a case of Burkitt`s lymphoma of the ovary with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Burkitt`s lymphoma
