Abstract

We report a case of maternal malignant lymphoma transferred to the fetus during pregnancy. A 29-year-old woman developed lymphoma at 29 weeks' gestation, and her infant developed malignant lymphoma at 8 months. Immunohistochemical examinations revealed lymphoid cells of similar characteristics in the maternal, placental, and infant tissues.
