Odontegenic tumor: unusual presentation of sporadic Burkitt’s lymphoma

Authors: Giménez Ortigoza V, Llanes G, Medina E

Abstract: Burkitt’s lymphoma (LB) is an uncommon and aggressive subtype of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma uncommon in adults. Three clinical variants are recognized: associated with immunodeficiency, sporadic (America) and the endemic one of equatorial Africa. We present the case of a 21-year-old man with LB whose first manifestation was the appearance of a tumor in the left maxilla and symptoms, initially treated as a dental abscess and otomastoiditis, with poor outcome mainly due to a delay in the diagnosis due to lack of consideration as an alternative differential diagnosis in immunocompetent subjects.

Key words: Burkitt lymphoma, lymphoma, facial asymmetry.
