The article features the result of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of a 43-year-old multiparous woman with a history of pelvic endometriosis and myocardial infarction as well as onset of right hemithorax pain. A video-assisted thoracoscopy (VATS) has been used to determine the condition of the patient. Photographs of the MRI result is also presented.

    Lymphoma of the cervix is a rare disease. About 1.0% to 1.5% of extranodal lymphomas originates in the female genital tract. The clinical presentation of this condition is nonspecific and magnetic resonance imaging is important for diagnostic elucidation. The present report describes the case of...
