Burkitt lymphoma is a high-grade B-cell lymphoma with aggressive course of disease and primarily systemic nodal involvement. Primary Burkitt lymphoma with isolated central nervous system (CNS) involvement and that too in pediatric population has been rarely reported. Here, we present a case of a primary Burkitt lymphoma involving brain in an human immunodeficiency virus–positive pediatric patient who was on antiretroviral therapy. Currently, there are no established protocols or guidelines for management of primary CNS Burkitt lymphoma thus posing challenges in the management of such cases. Our patient was successfully treated by surgical resection followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
