Abstract

KANAAN, Daniel; PARENTE, Daniella Braz; CONSTANTINO, Carolina Pesce Lamas  and  SOUZA, Rodrigo Canellas de. Lymphoma of uterine cervix: magnetic resonance imaging findings. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.3, pp. 167-169. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000300009.

Lymphoma of the cervix is a rare disease. About 1.0% to 1.5% of extranodal lymphomas originates in the female genital tract. The clinical presentation of this condition is nonspecific and magnetic resonance imaging is important for diagnostic elucidation. The present report describes the case of a 80-year-old patient with lumbar pain, whose magnetic resonance imaging showed a large uterine mass. The final diagnosis was lymphoma.

Keywords : Lymphoma; Uterus.
