Classic Hodgkin lymphoma involving the endometrium: an extremely rare finding associated with refractory/widespread disease

  • Simone B. S. P. Terra

Classic Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) involving the endometrium is extremely rare as lymphoma involving the female genital tract is uncommon in general and those that do are most commonly non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Here, we present a patient with refractory classic HL where PET scan imaging results led to an endometrial biopsy that confirmed uterine involvement of her disease.
