Bilateral Ovarian Burkitt Lymphoma in a Female Adolescent, Case Report

Maria Acevedo [2] | William Quessep - Mendoza [4] | Lorena Molinares | Gabriel David - Tarud

Abstract: Non - Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a tumor derived from the hematopoietic and lymphoid tissue and is one of the most prevalent malignancies in the pediatric population. It was first described in the 20th century associated with infections, autoimmune diseases, drugs, or genetic predisposing factors. The incidence can vary in different regions of the world, with a higher prevalence in low and middle - income countries and higher frequency in males compared to females. Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) is a subtype of non - Hodgkin's lymphoma and rarely has been described with ovarian infiltration. We present a case report of a female adolescent diagnosed with bilateral ovarian Burkitt lymphoma with liver and central nervous system metastasis.
