BENEDETTI P, Inés; BARRIOS G, Lía  and  CONTRERAS B, Eusebio. MALT-linfoma de cérvix: reporte de caso. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2012, vol.77, n.6, pp.457-460. ISSN 0717-7526.

The MALT-lymphomas of cervix are of very rare presentation. This is the case of a 38 years old patient in which this linfoproliferative disorder was detected incidentally in the routine cuts, during the anatomo-pathological study of a resection specimen product of total hysterectomy motivated by ecographic findings that were compatible with myomatosis of the uterine corpus. The etiology of these tumors is associated with infectious or autoimmune processes, and high radiosensitivity and chemosensitivity to biotherapy against antibodies CD20 (rituximab) has been described.

Keywords : MALT; lymphoma; uterine cervix.
