PEREIRA, Cláudio M. et al. Burkitt's lymphoma: clinic progression and prognosis: two different cases reports in young patients. Rev. odonto ciênc. (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.4, pp. 417-421. ISSN 1980-6523.

PURPOSE: Burkitt's lymphoma is one of the fastest growing malignancies in the pediatric population. It is a high-grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with endemic, sporadic and human immunodeficiency-associated subtypes. The African, or endemic, variant usually involves the maxilla and other facial bones, while head and neck manifestations in sporadic Burkitt's lymphoma are rare. CASE DESCRIPTION: Two cases of oral manifestations of Burkitt's lymphoma are described on the right jaw in young patients, which had different clinical evolution and prognosis.

Palavras-chave : Burkitt's lymphoma; B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; cancer.
