Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma involving the ovaries is unusual and may cause confusion for the clinician since its presentation might resemble other, much more frequent tumors. Malignant lymphoid cells may occur in the ovary either as a primary neoplasm or as a secondary manifestation of a disseminated occult or known disease. The most common presenting signs or symptoms of malignant lymphomas involving the ovaries are abdominal or pelvic pain or mass. We present here a unique case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma involving the ovaries presenting as advanced ovarian cancer with a pelvic mass, pleural effusion, and marked elevation of CA-125.
