Abstract

We report a rare case of primary Burkitt’s lymphoma involving the supra and parasellar regions with extension of the tumour into frontal lobes and posterior orbital spaces resulting in bilateral proptosis and blindness in a four year old male child. Burkitt’s lymphoma commonly affects the jaw and the abdominal organs. It is well known that Burkitt’s lymphoma affects the central nervous system during the relapse,11 yet its occurrence as a primary intracranial tumour without the involvement of other organs is extremely rare.4-6 In this report, we present a four year old child who presented with a grotesque appearance due to bilateral propsis, and total blindness.
