ASTOLFO, María F et al. Oral plasmablastic lymphoma in a human immunodeficiency virus positive child: a case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.2, pp.2-3. ISSN 0325-0075.

Plasmablastic lymphoma is a rare and aggressive subtype of diffuse large B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, originally described in the oral cavity of male adults with acquired immune deficiency syndrome. It is composed of neoplastic ceils which resemble immunoblasts but present immunophenotype distinctive of plasma cell and Epstein-Barr virus latent infection. In children, it is an even rarer disease. We present a case of oral plasmablastic lymphoma in a vertically transmitted human immunodeficiency virus-positive five-year-old child.

Keywords : Plasmablastic lymphoma; Epstein-Barr virus; Pediatrics; Human immunodeficiency virus infection.
