Abstract/OtherAbstract:
INTRODUCTION: Primary lymphomas of the female genital tract are rare. Most involve the cervix rather than the uterine corpus. Many cases of primary endometrial lymphoma are diagnosed as diffuse large B cell type, whereas the precursor B cell lymphoblastic type is extremely rare. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report a case of precursor B cell lymphoblastic lymphoma of uterine corpus which was successfully treated with surgery and chemotherapy. Staging evaluation revealed tumor limited to the uterine corpus (stage I(E)). After receiving a total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingooophorectomy, lymph node dissection and combination chemotherapy, the patient is currently free of disease after follow-up of 42 months. CONCLUSION: If correct diagnosis is established and appropriate therapy is chosen, the prognosis of precursor B-LBL of uterine corpus is expected to be good. The literature on primary precursor B cell lymphoblastic lymphoma of the uterine corpus is reviewed.
