Burkitt’s Lymphoma

I had not seen a case of Burkitt’s Lymphoma since I was in Africa in 1989.  I was amazed at that time the resolution the young patient had with chemotherapy.  I recently encountered a 3 year old with a massive right tonsil.  It was the most difficult intubation I have encountered and after removing the tonsil, it took nearly an hour to obtain complete hemostasis.
