Aim. Primary ovarian non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a very rare disease.
Median age at diagnosis is estimated at 42 years, something that leads to fertility preservation issues in many cases. This was a case report study, presenting a rare case of bilateral primary ovarian non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Case report. A 38-year old nulliparous woman, underwent exploratory laparotomy because of bilateral ovarian masses. Left salpingooophorectomy, partial omentectomy and excision of an ovarian mass of the right ovary was performed. Great effort in order to preserve healthy ovarian tissue of the right ovary as well as the right fallopian tube was given, due to fertility reasons. Final histology showed bilateral diffuse large B-cell primary ovarian non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Postoperatively, the patient underwent chemotherapy with the CHOP regimen in combination with rituximab. Five years after initial diagnosis, the patient remains well with normal menstrual cycle, without evidence of recurrence.
Discussion. Fertility preservation issues in some cases of rare gynecological malignancies could be managed via minimally invasive oncological approach.
