We report the case of a 53 year-old woman with a gastric tumor showing morphological, phenotypical and molecular features of a plasmablastic lymphoma, a recently recognized subtype of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The tumor was composed of plasmablast-like cells, lacked CD45 and B-cell associated antigens, expressed the plasma cellassociated antigen CD38, and showed clonally rearranged IgH genes in the absence of bcl-2 and bcl-6 genes rearrangement.

Abstract

We report the case of a 53 year-old woman with a gastric tumor showing morphological, phenotypical and molecular features of a plasmablastic lymphoma, a recently recognized subtype of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The tumor was composed of plasmablast-like cells, lacked CD45 and B-cell associated antigens, expressed the plasma cellassociated antigen CD38, and showed clonally rearranged IgH genes in the absence of bcl-2 and bcl-6 genes rearrangement.
