Abstract
Burkitt’s tumor is a variant of malignant
neoplasm of the hematopoietic system and is
more specifically designated as malignant lymphoma,
undifferentiated, Burkitt’s type. h 27)
In 1958, Burl이W) called attention to a remarkable
prevalence, in equatorial Africa, of a
round cell tumor that appeared predominantly
in children between the ages of three and nine
years, with predilection for the jaw in males
and the ovaries in females. With subsequent
investigations from many subspecialty fields,
this type of neoplasm has become more apparent
with following somewhat distinctive
features; (l) An extremely high incidence in
African children(median age of 5 years), so
high that the tumors comprised 50 per cent of
all malignant tumors in this age group in this
area. (2) An apparently limited geographical
distribution across the middle of Africa, in•
volving principally the Belgian Congo, Uganda,
Kenya and British East Africa, with some
scattered cases in French West Africa and
French Equatorial Africa. 5, 6) This relatively humid tropical climate (rainfall over 20 inches
per year) suggested the possibility of a specifie
arthropod vector and raised the further
possibility that the lymphoma might be caused
by a transmissible, possibly viral agent requiring
specific temperatures and humidity
modalities for the survival of insect vector. 4)
(3) An unusual anatomic distribution affecting
principally the jaw and abdominal region. (4)
The absence of leukemic manifestions in all
cases, even in the advanced stages of the
disease, giving rise sometimes to the designa
tion “non• -leukemic lymphoma".
