Primary renal Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is an unusual occurrence in children. Although the prognosis of this tumor is poor, early diagnosis on biopsy confirmed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) and followed by chemotherapy improves survival of such patients. We present a case of 4-year-old male child with bilateral renal lump suggestive of lymphoma on computerized tomography. Renal biopsy and subsequent IHC was suggestive of bilateral BL in the kidney; following which the child was started on FAB LMB 96 based treatment protocol.
