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.
