Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma presenting in and confined to the ovaries is a rare occurrence. A follicular histological pattern has been reported only occasionally in this setting. A case of follicular mixed small cleaved and large cell lymphoma, discovered incidentally and limited to the ovaries is reported. Immunological marker studies revealed a monoclonal population of B lymphocytes with surface Ig A Kappa. A review of cases in the literature suggests that follicular histology in stage I ovarian disease confers an outcome similar to that for follicular nodal disease.
