Burkitt Lymphoma
Definition: A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.

Synonym(s): African Lymphoma / Burkitt Tumor / Lymphoma, Burkitt / Burkitt's Lymphoma / Burkitt's Tumor / Burkitts Lymphoma / Burkitts Tumor / Lymphoma, Burkitt's / Tumor, Burkitt / Tumor, Burkitt's
