Granulocytic sarcoma (GS) or chloroma is a neoplasia of immature myeloid cells. Bones, skins, soft tissues and lymph nodes are the most frequently involved organs with this entity and not infrequently it is diagnosed histopathologically as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Ovarian granulocytic sarcoma is a rare entity in daily practice. Here we report an ovarian granulocytic sarcoma, initially diagnosed as NHL, and review the literature.
