Burkitt lymphoma is the most common subtype of nonHodgkin's lymphoma in childhood. Although, Burkitt lymphoma mostly involves the head and neck in children, the gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary tract, gonads, mesentery, peritoneum, and retroperitoneum are also potential sites of involvement. Herein, we report computed tomography (CT) findings of hepatic, pancreatic, kidney, and peritoneal involvement of intestinal Burkitt lymphoma in a pediatric case.
