  Abstract :

Plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) is a rare but aggressive neoplasm that arises from post germinal center B cells. It is more common in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the most common site is oral cavity1. Recent data suggest that these tumors are now seen in many extra-oral sites such as the gastro-intestinal tract. We report a case of 44 year old male who presented with features of acute intestinal obstruction. On further evaluation he was found to have plasmablastic lymphoma of the ileum that showed diffuse positivity for CD138.
