Burkitt`s lymphoma is a rare disease that belongs to the aggressive non-Hodgkin`s lymphomas. Burkitt`s lymphoma usually occurs in children or younger persons. There is a strong association between endemic Burkitt's lymphoma and Epstein-Barr virus, whereas the association is weaker in the sporadic form occurring in Western countries. Burkitt`s lymphoma of the gastrointestinal tract occurring in adults has not been reported in Korea. We herein report an unusual case of Burkitt's lymphoma presenting with a palpable abdominal mass in a 52-year-old man infected with Epstein-Barr virus. A computed tomographic scan showed marked low density wall thickening of the terminal ileum. An endoscopy revealed a narrow lumen, shallow ulcerations, and irregular nodularity of the terminal ileum. Small bowel resection and hemicolectomy were performed and a histologic examination of the resected specimen confirmed the diagnosis. Six cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy were given and the patient has been doing well without evidence of recurrence. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2001;22:435-439)
