Caption: Burkitt's lymphoma. Endoscope view of the inside of the nasal cavity, showing the presence of Burkitt's lymphoma. A lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell. This condition has several variants. The endemic type is found in children in equatorial Africa, and is thought to be due to malaria reducing resistance to the Epstein-Barr virus. A more sporadic type is also thought to be due to this virus. Burkitt's lymphoma can also occur in AIDS patients. One of the places that it affects is the bones of the face. This cancer grows very fast, and if left untreated can lead to facial deformities, and eventually death. Treatment is with chemotherapy.
