Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is one of the aggressive subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma commonly seen among pediatric and young population. Primary BL of pelvic bone presenting with back pain, paraparesis, and multifocal osteolytic lesion in the elderly is a rare entity. We report a case of primary BL of pelvic bone in a 65-year-old female presenting with back pain and paraparesis, facing diagnostic dilemma as the lesions were radiologically mimicking multiple myeloma. Subsequently, bone marrow flowcytometry and cytogenetic evaluation by fluorescence insitu hybridization confirmed the diagnosis. We highlight the diagnostic challenge, clinical presentation, and treatment strategy in such a rare case along with a review of literature.
