BACKGROUND: Malignant lymphoma arising from the uterine cervix is a very rare entity. Only two such patients have been reported as pregnant at the time of diagnosis. CASE: A 35-year-old woman (negative Pap smear at antenatal clinics) was referred because of the accidental finding of a huge cervical mass during labor. The patient underwent cesarean section because of arrest of cervical dilatation and persistent floating of the fetal head. The final diagnosis of this cervical mass was malignant lymphoma, low grade B cell, after radical abdominal hysterectomy. CONCLUSION: Although labor obstructed by a tumor of the pelvic organs is a relatively rare event and the majority of cases are benign leiomyomas of the uterus or cervix, the risk of pelvic malignancies should be considered. Bimanual examination and pelvic ultrasound and/or color Doppler ultrasound should be applied without hesitancy in any uncertain situation during pregnancy or labor.
