Abstract

Burkitt lymphoma is a rapidly progressive disease which requires imaging, biopsy, prompt diagnosis and early aggressive chemotherapeutic treatment. We discuss a 7-year-old girl presenting with a persistent and painful unilateral swelling of the jaw. Lymphomas typically manifest as poor defined osteolytic lesions radiographically, as is presented in this case.
