GOEDHALS, J; STONES, D K  and  BOTHA, M C. Plasmablastic lymphoma in childhood: A report of two cases. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1, pp.39-40. ISSN 1999-7671.

Plasmablastic lymphoma is an aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma predominantly seen in adult patients. Only eight cases of plasmablastic lymphoma in children have been published to date. In this report, we present an additional two cases. The first patient was a 9-year-old girl presenting with a nasal mass, while the second was a 15-year-old girl with swelling of the right side of the face and proptosis. Both patients were HIV-positive.
