Obstructive jaundice secondary to Burkitt’s lymphoma (BL) is very rare. It is important to recognise this condition as it can mimic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas, but the management of the two conditions is very different. In this study, we present the case of a seventy-nine year old male with right upper quadrant pain, jaundice, and pruritus. It is crucial to consider BL as a differential diagnosis of obstructive jaundice as both the prognosis and treatment are markedly different.
Key words: Burkitt’s, Jaundice, lymphoma, adult.
