Female adnexal tumor of probable Wolf. an origin (FATPWO) is a rare neoplasm arising within the leaves of broad ligament or hanging from it or a fallopian tube. A 55-year-old female patient with the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma is presented. The staging procedure revealed a pelvic mass that was not regressed by chemotherapy. Explorative laparotomy showed FATPWO. The extremely rare coexistence of FATPWO in the staging evaluation of non-Hodgkin lymphoma is reported. According to our knowledge, this is the. first case of FATPWO coexisting with extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in the English-language literature.
