This Nigerian child presented with a large facial tumor, which had been due to a case of malignant Burkitt’s lymphoma, a form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). Very similar to leukemia, Burkitt’s lymphoma is a very aggressive, malignant cancer. The solid tumor is composed predominantly of aberrant B-cells, which are integral to a normally healthy immune system.
