Lymphoma involving the uterus is rare, and the diagnosis is usually difficult due to the rarity and nonspecific presentation. The treatment is often delayed and difficult because there is no standard treatment. We report our experience with a case of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) involving the uterus. A 40-year-old female presented to our hospital posthysterectomy for suspected fibroid. Computed tomography scan and the tissue biopsy along with the immunoprofile revealed uterine DLBCL. She was treated with chemotherapy followed by radiation therapy and showed the complete response to the treatment, and thus, the clinicians should be aware of this rare disease for prompt diagnosis.
