Abstract

A 37-year-old woman from Puerto Rico presented to our clinic with symptoms of an abdominal distension progressively worsening over 1 year. A CT of an abdomen and pelvis with contrast was performed and revealed bilateral large heterogeneous pelvic adnexal masses with large ascites and right pleural effusion. Tumour markers CA 125 was 766 U/mL and lactate dehydrogenase was 654 U/L. She underwent total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection and partial omentectomy. Pathology of ovarian masses revealed a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The staging work-up was negative, which pointed towards the diagnosis of primary ovarian lymphoma. The patient completed 8 cycles of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisolone chemotherapy. After 18 months of chemotherapy completion, she remains in remission.
