Abstract

Lynphomas are the most common malignant non-epithelial tumours in the oral cavity and maxilofacial región. The risk of HIV patients presenting with this condition is 200 times more compared to the general population. Plasmablastic lymphoma is a rare aggresive neoplasm. The WHO 2008 classification defines it as a diffuse proliferation of large neoplastic cells, such as B immunoblasts with plasma inmunophenotype cells, with most cases being associated with HIV patients. The purpose of this article is to present a systematic review of this pathology together with a case of difficult diagnosis due to its clinical expression, and in which the histopathology study was decisive.
