About the disease

Burkitt lymphoma, also known as aggressive B cell lymphoma, is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It is a cancer, which starts to develop in the B-cells of immune system. This type of tumor is considered to be the most rapid growing kind of tumor. Burkitt lymphoma  is believed to be caused by impaired immune system. If treated on time, this tumor has high survival rates of more than 50%. High-dose chemotherapy is considered to be the most effective treatment option for this type of cancer. Burkitt lymphoma is most common in children, who had Epstein-Barr virus and malaria, which can be detrimental to immune system of a child. Combination of Epstein-Barr and malaria was the leading cause of Burkitt lymphoma in 98% cases in Africa, where this disease is most predominant. On other continents, this disease is rare accounting for approximately 1% to 2% of all lymphoma cases worldwide. There are approximately 1, 200 new cases of lymphoma in USA, for example. In USA this disease is more common in people over 40 years old.

This unusual disease was first identified by the British scientist Denis Burkitt, who first diagnosed it in African children. Only in 1956 identification of this type of lymphoma was done. Before that, this disease could not be diagnosed.

Most commonly, Burkitt lymphoma affects the jaw and other facial bones in Africa, while in USA it can affect the bowel and the abdomen.

Symptoms

  • Lump or mass in the abdomen or on the face
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Weight loss
  • Lack of appetite
  • Fever
  • Profound sweating

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination  doctor will examine the area where the bulk or strange mass can be palpated and determine if the lymph nodes are enlarged. Previous history of malaria and Epstein-Barr virus are also important for the correct diagnosis.
  • A CT scan and MRI scan of different organs are used to determine which organs exactly have been affected by Burkitt lymphoma .
  • Blood tests are used to determine if kidney and liver function properly.
  • Biopsy of the tissue, where the mass or lump is accumulated is used to examine the cells under the microscope and determine if they were affected.

Treatment

  • Chemotherapy is used to scatter and kill as many malignant cells as possible. Most commonly, high-intensity chemotherapy is used to fight the malignant cells. A patient may need to undergo several courses of chemotherapy to fully recover. Chances for recovery for this type of lymphoma are high in case there is timely diagnosis.
  • Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (stem cell transplant) is used to transplant the stem cells, so that the immune system of a person functions normally again and normal T cells are produced again as well. Transplantation of stem cells from the donor or relative is most commonly used.
