The authors report a case of bilateral primary malignant lymphoma of the breast presenting during pregnancy in a 24-year-old woman. After the delivery of a healthy premature infant by Caesarean section, polychemotherapy was employed. The efficacy of the treatment could not be evaluated since the patient died within a very short period of time. Autopsy and histological examination revealed infiltration of Burkitt-type lymphoma in the breast, ovary, brain, liver, kidney, adrenal gland, pancreas, stomach, bone marrow and myocardium.
