Abstract: 

History & Objective: Extranodal lymphoma is a subgroup of non Hodgkin"s lymphoma and its common primary sites are the head and neck (tonsilles), skin, and gastrointinal tract ( stomach and small intestine ). Primary Lymphoma in the female genital system, especially in uterine cervix is extremely rare.
Patient: This is a case report of a 43- year old woman who referred to the hospital with the complaint of spotting. After primary work up including vaginal exam, pap smear, biopsy and pelvic sonography, the patient was admitted for abdominal hysterectomy. Pathologic results were compatible with lymphoma of uterine cervix. Results were confirmed with immunohistochemistry (IHC) method.
Conclusion: Standard chemotherapy regimen for lymphoma and then radiation of pelvic and lymph nodes were done. Follow up of the patient did not indicate any problem. Although primary lymphoma of uterine cervix is rare and it requires special treatment with respect to the age and fertility status of the patients, it should be considered as a differential diagnosis of malignant lesions of uterine cervix.
