Abstract

Since its initial description in 1958, Burkitt lymphoma has become a prototype for our understanding of the pathogenesis and optimal treatment of aggressive lymphomas. The evolution of the treatment of this disease is explored and current therapeutic approaches evaluated. Special issues in the treatment of Burkitt lymphoma will also be discussed, including considerations in patients infected with HIV and current views on prophylactic measures and treatment of tumor lysis syndrome.
