A non-menopausal women underwent gynecological evaluation for spotting and menstrual irregularities. After first line gynecological assessments, the patient underwent office hysteroscopy. By using an in-office technique, two isthmic endometrial polyps and one cervical polyp were removed. One endometrial polyp was found to harbor a B-cell high-grade lymphoma just on the apex (found to be necrotic). The following staging examinations and the pathological assessment of the endometrium, the uterus, the adnexa, and the lymphatic regional nodes did not find any localization of the lymphoma. No additional treatments were done. The patient is alive and disease- free at 18 months follow-up.
