Primary ovarian lymphoma is a rare malignancy with <1% incidence. Plasmablastic lymphoma usually associated with immunocompromised diseases such as HIV rarely involves the ovary; only two case studies are reported in the literature – plasmablastic lymphomatous involvement of an ovarian teratoma and another of plasmablastic variant of B-cell lymphoma involving bilateral ovaries. There are reported case series of synchronous presentation of carcinomas usually including lung, stomach, and colon and nonaggressive lymphomas. Here, we report a rare case of synchronous aggressive primary plasmablastic ovarian lymphoma with adenocarcinoma of the lung, both of which are associated with immune-compromised conditions.
