Plasmablastic lymphoma is an uncommon B – cell lymphoma representing ‹3% of all non-Hodgkin lymphoma associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection. It displays a distinctive affinity for extranodal presentation in the oral cavity. The case of a plasmablastic lymphoma present in the ovary, cervix and soft thigh tissues of a 27 year-old woman with human immunodeficiency infection is reported.

Key words: plasmablastic lymphoma, ovary, human immunodeficiency virus, HIV.
