Denis Burkitt found the first case of a "lymphoma" in children from the region of Africa, which double its size every 24 hours. A Nineteen years male adolescent was admitted in the hospital with the chief complaints of high-grade fever along with Fatigue, Giddiness. The most common treatment for BL is intensive chemotherapy, which usually lasts for a month, but may also last up to 8 months. Children with BL having survival rates better than adults. Burkitt's lymphoma is associated with a particular translocation t(8:14)(q24:q23) that juxtaposes the MYC/c-Myc gene (8q24). It represents around half of all malignant non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in children and around 2% in adults in Europe and North America. In Africa, BL accounts for 30-50% of all childhood cancer. the standard treatment for BL is intensive chemotherapy, which usually lasts for a month, but may also last up to 8 months. When diagnosed early, the survival rate higher than 90%. Most of the physicians will choose chemotherapy and some other treatment options based on disease complexity and patient progress. This information might be helpful.
