Microscopically, the cells arranged in a diffuse pattern and had an anaplastic morphology. Mitoses were numerous. The conclusion of the frozen section was a malignancy, tends to be Germ Cell Tumor. The diagnosis was then confirmed by routine histopathology examination and found diffuse, solid sheets and linear anaplastic cell tumor. Differential diagnosis of Non Hodgkin Lymphoma, Undifferentiated carcinoma and Embryonal carcinoma were made and immunohistochemical examination was done. The results showed as follow: CD45 and CD20 were diffusely positive, TdT and CD3 was negative and Ki67 was positive in 90% tumor cells. Conclusion: Based on histopathology and immunohistochemical examination, this case was concluded as Non-Hodgkin?s lymphoma, diffuse large B cell, anaplastic variant, stage IIIE.
