Abstract

A case of asymptomatic, large cell diffuse malignant Non-Hodgkin's primary vaginal lymphoma, detected during the diagnosis of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia is described. After staging of the disease, the patient was treated with chemotherapy alone. Complete response was obtained after the cytostatic course and the disease-free interval is now 16 months. Despite the frequent clinical symptomatology of vaginal lymphomas, vaginal bleeding or gross vaginal masses, we report a case of incidental diagnosis superimposed on the pathologic patterns of a cervical dysplasia. Non-specific and apparently normal vaginal nodularities should always be submitted to biopsy.
