Abstract

  • A patient with human immunodeficiency virus-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma arising in the oral cavity is reported. The tumour had an unusual immunohistochemical profile that was negative for leucocyte common antigen and the B-cell antigen CD20 but positive for the plasma cell-reactive antibody VS38c. The features of this type of tumour, which has recently been categorized, are presented and discussed.
