Burkitt’s lymphoma of stomach: a case report and review of literature

Résumé

Le lymphome de Burkitt est une entité histologique distincte des lymphomes non Hodgkiniens. La forme sporadique est rare chez l’adulte immunocompétent.

Nous rapportons un cas de lymphome de Burkitt gastrique chez un patient séronégatif pour le virus de l’immunodéficience humaine, révélé par une hémorragie digestive. L’aspect endoscopique était celui de « coffee cup-like ulcers » caractéristique de ce type de lymphome. Le diagnostic a été confirmé par les biopsies gastriques et ganglionnaires. Le patient est décédé avant l’instauration de toute chimiothérapie.

La localisation gastrique du lymphome de Burkitt est inhabituelle, et ses aspects endoscopiques sont encore mal décrits. Notre travail est une revue de la littérature du lymphome de Burkitt dans sa localisation gastro-duodénale, ainsi que ses caractéristiques endoscopiques.

Summary

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.
