Introduction: Plasmablastic lymphoma is a rare subtype of B cell lymphoma with poor prognosis. The pathogenesis and molecular features of this rare entity was largely unclear. Case Report: We report a rare case of PBL in a 57-year-old immunocompetent male patient. The patient was admitted to our hospital because of multiple lymph node enlargement detected by computed tomography during the physical examination. The biopsy results confirmed the diagnosis of PBL. This patient achieved partial remission after DA-EPOCH chemotherapy and received ASCT as consolidation therapy. However, disease progression occurred and the patient died 2 months after ASCT. Discussion: PBL is characterized by rapid disease progression and high mortality rates. More effective treatment regimen needs to be explored. Conclusion: PBL was a highly invasive rare lymphoma with poor prognosis, it is urgent to develop new targets and agents.
