Abstract

MOODLEY, H; MAHOMED, N  and  ANDRONIKOU, S. Abdominal Burkitt's lymphoma with renal involvement. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.2, pp.79-79. ISSN 1999-7671.

Endemic Burkitt's lymphoma is the most frequent childhood cancer in Africa, commonly presenting with involvement of the abdominal viscera. Imaging plays a critical role in suggesting the diagnosis to expedite treatment initiation, as the tumour has a rapid doubling time of less than 24 hours. This case report illustrates the classic nodal and infrequent renal appearance on computed tomography scans.
