Burkitt lymphoma of the orbit: pre and post chemotherapy


Burkitt's lymphoma  is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, more common in the so called "Burkitt's lymphoma belt" where there is high prevalence of malaria. It has also been associated with Epstein-Barr virus. This type of lymphoma responds very well to chemotherapy alone(Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, Methotrexate and predenisolone in this case)

This case demonstrated  the good response  of Burkitts lymphoma  to chemotherapy on imaging.
