Abstract

Neuroendocrine tumors are frequently associated with other primary malignancies. Plasmablastic lymphoma is a rare, aggressive neoplasm, derived from large B-cell, associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection. Plasmablastic lymphoma cells share many cytomorphologic and immunophenotypic features with plasmablastic cells, causing some diagnostic problems. We present a unique case of coexisting two very uncommon neoplasms: plasmablastic lymphoma and neuroendocrine carcinoma in 54-years-old men. This is the first report of caecum localization of plasmablastic lymphoma. Presented case images diagnostic problems in rare neoplasms.
