The involvement of the ovaries in lymphomatous processes is a relatively rare phenomenon. Secondary involvement as a part of systemic disease is common as compared to de novo primary lymphoma. Mostly, primary ovarian lymphomas are diffuse large B cell type, whereas the precursor lymphoblastic lymphomas are extremely rare and only four cases have been reported previously. We herein describe a case of primary precursor B lymphoblastic lymphoma involving both ovaries in a 28-year-old woman which was detected incidentally and spread into the blood after 7 months; consequently she succumbed to the disease.
