Lymphome de Burkitt gastrique: à propos d’un cas et revue de la littérature
Burkitt’s lymphoma of stomach: a case report and review of literature
Burkitt’s lymphoma is a distinct histologic type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Non-endemic Burkitt’s lymphoma is rare in non-HIV adult population.
We hereby report Burkitt’s lymphoma of stomach in an immuno-competent adult revealed by digestive haemorrhage. Gastric and lymph node biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. The endoscopic findings are small ulcers called “coffee cup-like” ulcers characteristically present in Burkitt’s lymphoma. Patient died before starting chemotherapy.
The presentation of Burkitt’s lymphoma with gastroduodenal disease is unusual, and the endoscopic features have not been previously reported. Gastrointestinal involvement of Burkitt’s lymphoma is reviewed and endoscopic characteristics are presented.
