The malignant lymphomas are neoplastic transformation of cells that reside predominantly in lymphoid tissues. The two major variants of malignant lymphoma are non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and Hodgkin's disease. Although both of these tumors infiltrate reticuloendothelial organs, their biologic and clinical behaviors suggest that they are probably not related. More than 90% of all cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas are of B-cell derivation. This observation is based upon the expression of B-lineage-restricted antigens as well as clonal rearrangements of immunoglobulin heavy and light chain genes. The malignant lymphoma localized in uterine cervix is rare and characteristically symptom-free expressed. We experienced a case of malignant lymphoma originated from uterine cervix, so we report with a brief of literature.
