Lymphoma-like lesions (LLL) of the lower female genital tract are florid reactive inflammatory processes that mainly occur in women in their reproductive years. Histologically, they are characterized by a dense lymphoid infiltrate with admixed large cells that is often suspicious for lymphoma. In contrast to lymphoma, however, they are superficial lesions that typically show surface erosion and a mixed lymphoid infiltrate and do not have evidence of a mass, deep invasion, or prominent sclerosis… CONTINUE READING
