Burkitt’s Lymphoma is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin-s B-cell lymphoma. Here, we review the literature on Burkitt’s Lymphoma and briefly summarize some clinical, etiological, genetic and histopathological aspects. We also present a case of Burkittt’s lymphoma presenting as a maxillary swelling in an HIV-negative 35-year-old black man. The clinical presentation of Burkitt’s Lymphoma

can be confused with a variety of other disorders in the oral cavity. Understanding the disease, its epidemiology, and including it in the differential diagnosis is essential for early detection of Burkitt’s lymphoma of the oral and maxillofacial area, in order to avoid delay and inappropriate treatment strategies.
