Burkitt lymphoma (BL) must be distinguished from other primary abdominal tumors in childhood, including Wilms tumor, neuroblastoma, and peripheral neuroectodermal tumor. In the bone marrow, BL must be differentiated from B and T precursor and myeloid leukemias. Among peripheral B-cell lymphomas, the major difficulty is to differentiate BL from diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), lymphoblastic lymphoma, and blastic mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).
