Burkitt lymphoma is a highly aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. As Burkitt lymphoma cells are very sensitive to chemotherapy, chemotherapy is the major therapeutic schedule for this disease. Rituximab raised the overall survival rate markedly. Bone marrow transplant, surgery and radiotherapy also demonstrated to have a supporting role for patients with Burkitt lymphoma.
