Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pleural effusion in sporadic Burkitt's lymphoma is very rare. The diagnosis of Burkitt's lymphoma was confirmed by histopathological and immunohistochemical examination, while pleura involvement was confirmed by pleural fluid analysis and its cytology. We presented a 6-year-old girl diagnosed with Burkitt's lymphoma who came for the sixth cycle of chemotherapy presented with shortness of breath. Lymphoma cell infiltration was confirmed by immunohistochemical examination of the mass in the ileum and pleural fluid cytology. Although rare, the possibility of lymphoma cell infiltration should be considered if a pleural effusion is found in Burkitt's lymphoma.
