    This is the first documented case of a T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma arising in the uterus. At presentation, the patient also had a life-threatening pneumonia due to Chlamydia trachomatis which responded to erythromycin and tetracycline. Cytotoxic therapy produced partial tumour regression, but the patient died 14 weeks after diagnosis, probably as a result of intercurrent infection.
