Abstract

Sporadic Burkitt’s lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma that comprises 30 percent of non-endemic pediatric lymphomas. When found in extranodal locations of the head and neck, BL most commonly presents as a unifocal mass in the maxilla and mandible. We present the first case of sporadic, multifocal BL presenting concurrently in the temporal bone and parapharyngeal space.

Keywords: Burkitt’s lymphoma; Extranodal, multifocal; Non-hodgkin’s lymphoma; Pediatric malignancy
