Primary lymphoma arising in female genital tract organs is extremely rare. We report three cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma which were encountered during a four-year period at our gynecologic department. One patient presented with an inguinal mass; another had a primary lymphoma of the vagina and the third had massive pelvic and para-aortic lymphomatous involvement. The gynecologists should be aware that, although rarely, lymphomas may arise in the genital tract, and that a massive involvement of inguinal, pelvic or para-aortic nodes may be related to a lymphoproliferative disease.
