A case of plasmablastic lymphoma that has not been described previously in the thyroid is presented with its clinicopathological features and the diagnostic difficulties encountered. A detailed histopathology in conjunction with immunohistochemistry is recommended for appropriate diagnosis and management in the setting of HIV-negative status. Dealing with a case presenting primarily as a thyroid mass can be challenging in the scenario of a CD20-negative immunoprofile.
