The ovarian lymphoma is rare. Lymphoma presenting as an ovarian mass with initial manifestation is even rarer. We report a case of primary Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) of left ovary in a 52-year-old female presented with distension of abdomen and lower abdominal back pain. USG and CT-scan imaging suggested provisional diagnosis of ovarian tumour. The diagnosis of malignant lymphoma was made by histopathological examination of the excised tissue along with immunohistochemistry by using LCA, CD20, cytokeratin & CD3. The tumour was classified as diffuse large B cell lymphoma. Rarity of this lesion warrants its mention.
