Plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infections.1,2 Prognosis is poor, with most patients succumbing to fulminant metastatic disease within the first year of diagnosis. The oral cavity is the most commonly reported location of PBL followed by the gastrointestinal tract, lymph nodes, and skin.3 We present a case of PBL presenting as a solitary nasal septal mass.
