Burkitt’s lymphoma is an aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It is less common in adults accounting for less than 5% of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases. Radiological methods (ultrasonography, computed tomography) are indispensable for the initial evaluation and appreciation of organ extension; complete diagnosis is confirmed by the histopathological examination.
We present the clinical case and ultrasound imaging particularities of a young patient diagnosed with multisystem involvement Burkitt’s lymphoma, with rapid progressive evolution towards exitus.
