Abstract

Burkitt lymphoma is an uncommon type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that often involves extranodal sites. The disease predominantly affects children and has an aggressive clinical course. We report the imaging findings of a 23-year-old woman with an atypical Burkitt lymphoma that involved both ovaries and kidneys. The patient has remained in complete remission three years after the initiation of treatment.
