Abstract

We present a case of a 54-year-old woman treated for stage IIAE primary diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of the uterine cervix. The CHOP chemotherapy regimen was started. After the diagnosis of lymphoma of DLBCL CD20+ type was confirmed, rituximab was added to the therapy. Within systemic therapy, the patient received two cycles of CHOP and six cycles of R-CHOP altogether. After treatment completion, total remission of the lesions was observed on computed tomography. Twenty-four months after therapy completion, the patient is disease-free with no signs of recurrence.
