CORTI, Marcelo et al. Burkitt's lymphoma of the oral cavity in a female with AIDS: case report and literature review. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.1, pp.44-47. ISSN 2173-9161.

Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) are a heterogeneous group of diseases with a high prevalence in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected patients. The immunosuppression associated with AIDS predisposes to develop NHL, including Burkitt's lymphoma (BL). BL is an uncommon and aggressive subtype of NHL that occurs with increased frequency among patients with AIDS. BL is associated with a high proliferative rate (Ki67 index) and compromises extranodal sites as the clinical presentation of the disease. Here we report a case of a primary BL of the oral cavity in an AIDS female patient, and a review the literature on the characteristics of oral cavity lymphomas in AIDS patients.

Keywords : Burkitt's lymphoma; HIV; Oral cavity; AIDS.
