TORRES, Coral et al. Burkitt lymphoma associated with Human Immunodeficiency Virus. A clinical case report. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.3, pp.148-150. ISSN 0719-0107.

Burkitt lymphoma is a highly aggressive mature B-cell lymphoma with a low incidence. According to the World Health Organization, it has three variants: endemic, sporadic and associated with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The last one represents 30-40% of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas in HIV seropositive patients. Treatment with chemotherapy in combination with highly active antiretroviral therapy gives very good results. Here is the case report of a HIV seropositive patient who developed Burkitt lymphoma in the oral cavity and received this treatment.

Keywords : Burkitt lymphoma; Human immunodeficiency virus; Drug therapy; Antiretroviral therapy, Highly active.
