Central Nervous System Involvement in Burkitt Lymphoma: A Case Report
and Review of Literature
Central nervous system involvement in Burkitt lymphoma is a frequent
complication, affecting less than 10% of patients with the endemic
form, 10%–20% with the non-endemic form, and 20%–30% with the
immunodeficiency-associated form. Here we discuss the distinct clinical
features, diagnostic approach and chemotherapeutic treatment of three
cases in our institution.
