Natural killer (NK) cells host in the human endometrium with dedicated role in reproductive physiology. Interestingly, malignant transformation of these specialized cells has not been presented thus far. Here we report a primary endometrial NK-cell lymphoma of a 48 year-old patient presenting with irregular bleeding. The endometrial curetting showed a dense lymphomatous infiltrate demonstrating highly infiltrative aggressive features with characteristic angiocentric, partially angiodestructive… CONTINUE READING
