Primary lymphomas of the female genital tract (PLFGT) are extremely rare. It’s more frequent that they appear as a dissemination of the disease. The ovaries are the most common site of PLFGT, followed by the cervix, whereas lymphoma of the endometrium is extremely rare. We present a case of a 61 year-old woman with follicular endometrial B lymphoma, a Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In spite of it being rare, we must include it in the differential diagnosis along with other gynecological cancers and it’s important to know how to manage it. Biopsy and immunohistochemistry are essential for diagnosis and the treatment is chemotherapy R-CHOP.
