Malignant lymphoma has been known to involve the ovaries secondarily, in later stages of disseminated nodal disease. Lymphoma presenting with ovarian mass as an initial manifestation is a rare entity, accounting for 0.5% of Non Hodgkinâ€™s lymphomas and 1.5% of all ovarian tumors. We report here, a case of primary bilateral ovarian B-cell type non HodgkinÂ´s lymphoma with ascitis in a 30 year old female, without any obvious lymphadenopathy. The post-surgery patient refused further work-up and treatment and expired after 4 months.
