Overall survival (OS) of patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related Burkitt lymphoma (BL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) was analysed in the German AIDS-related-Lymphoma-Cohort-Study. Of 291 patients prospectively included between January 2005 and December 2012, 154 had DLBCL, 103 BL and 34 PBL. Two-year OS rates were similar between BL (69%) and DLBCL patients (63%) but lower for PBL patients (43%). Intermediate (Hazard ratio [HR] 4·1 95% confidence interval [CI] 1·98-8·49) or high (HR 4·92 95% CI 2·1-11·61) International Prognostic Index, bone marrow involvement (HR 1·69 95% CI 1·00-2·84) and PBL histology (HR 2·24 95% CI 1·24-4·03) were independent predictors of mortality.
