Primary Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma of the Uterine Cervix: Report of Three Cases with Immunohistochemical Study
Keywords:Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, cervix, histopathology, immunohistochemistry
Primary Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) involving the uterine cervix and other parts of female reproductive tract are extremely rare and the treatment modalities of this disease are also not well defined. We describe three cases of primary non-Hodgkins lymphoma of the cervix, confirmed to be diffuse large B cell lymphoma on histopathological examination and immunohistochemical study. All other possible primary sites were excluded clinically and radiologically in all the three cases.The clinical history, histopathological features, immunohistochemical features, differential diagnoses and review of literature regarding these cases are described.
