Abstract

Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) is usually diagnosed in children and young adults. Adults with Burkitt's lymphoma, particularly those with advanced stage disease, present with poorer prognosis compared to children and very rarely as multiorgan tumors. Involvement of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract presents with GI tract symptoms and can cause intussusception. Herein, we report a 42-year-old, chronic schizophrenic woman, presenting with lower GI bleeding secondary to intussusception, and the radiologic study revealed multiple site organs involvement including terminal ileum, cecum, and bilateral ovaries. She underwent optimal cytoreduction procedure, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and radical right hemicolectomy with ileocolostomy, and adjuvant multiagents chemotherapy postoperatively with the regimen of CODOX-M/IVAC for four courses without radiologic evidence of tumor recurrence after a 6-year follow-up.
