Primary liver lymphomas are uncommon, accounting for only 0.4% of all the extra nodal lymphomas. Burkitt's lymphoma is a rare type of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. It is classified into three types: Endemic, sporadic and immunodeficiency associated. Endemic type is found in Africa, associated with Epstein-Barr Viral infection. Non-endemic type usually involves mesenteric lymph nodes or ileocecal area and usually presents as an abdominal mass. Primary hepatic Burkitt's lymphoma is a very rare neoplasm. Here, we present the case of a 28-year-old male presenting with right upper quadrant pain and generalized weakness. A core needle biopsy of the liver was performed, which revealed cytologic and immunohistochemical findings compatible with Burkitt's lymphoma.
