Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Primary spinal epidural Burkitt lymphoma, presenting with signs of spinal cord compression, is very uncommon in childhood. Previously reported pediatric cases with isolated epidural Burkitt lymphoma had a high mortality, and survivors usually suffered serious neurologic sequelae. The authors present a 13-year-old female with isolated epidural Burkitt lymphoma with favorable outcome, and review the pediatric literature.
