Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is the most common histological type among pediatric non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL). It is a neoplasm with a high Proliferation Index and most often originates from an extranodal site; secondary pancreatic involvement can affect up to one third of patients with NHL while primary pancreatic lymphoma is rare. We present the clinical case of a 6-year-old boy with pancreatic Burkitt lymphoma and atypical symptoms.
