  Abstract:
  Primary uterine cervical non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) are rare. Limited experience dictates careful pretherapy evaluation and multidisciplinary approach in treatment planning. A 53-year-old woman presented with postmenopausal bleeding and PAP smear IIIb. Cervical biopsy and endocervical curettage biopsy revealed NHL of the uterine cervix. Abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral adnexectomy was followed by pelvic lymphadenectomy due to lymph node metastasis, 21 months after the primary operation. Subsequently, the patient received postoperative chemotherapy. Seven years after the onset of NHL she is alive with no evidence of disease recurrence.
  Key words: Cervix Neoplasms; Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin
