Burkitt’s Lymphoma Presenting as a Maxillary Swelling in a HIV-Negative Adult

Abstract

Burkitov limfom agresivni je oblik non-Hodginova limfoma B-stanica. U ovom prikazu dajemo presjek podataka o tom limfomu iz literature i ukratko navodimo njegove kliničke, etiološke, genske i histopatološke aspekte. Opisujemo i slučaj Burkitova limfoma u obliku maksilarne otekline kod HIV-negativnog 35-godišnjeg muškarca crne rase. Klinički izgled toga limfoma može se zamijeniti s nizom poremećaja u usnoj šupljini. Moramo istaknuti da je za njegovo rano otkrivanje u usnoj šupljini i u maksilofacijalnom području nužno razumijevanje bolesti i njezine etiologije te pravodobni diferencijalnodijagnostički postupak. Samo će se tako izbjeći prekasna i neodgovarajuća terapija.Burkitt’s Lymphoma is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin\u27s B-cell lymphoma. Here, we review the literature on Burkitt’s Lymphoma and briefly summarize some clinical, etiological, genetic and histopathological aspects. We also present a case of Burkittt’s lymphoma presenting as a maxillary swelling in an HIV-negative 35-year-old black man. The clinical presentation of Burkitt’s Lymphoma can be confused with a variety of other disorders in the oral cavity. Understanding the disease, its epidemiology, and including it in the differential diagnosis is essential for early detection of Burkitt’s lymphoma of the oral and maxillofacial area, in order to avoid delay and inappropriate treatment strategies
