Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) is a rare and aggressive neoplasm an uncommon at the nasopharynx and skull base area. BL is rapidly growing B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. It commonly affects the gastrointestinal tract, whereas the primary involvement of the anterior skull base and nasopharynx is uncommon. Histopathological and immunohistochemical examinations confirm the diagnosis. Here, we are presenting a case of a 13-year-old boy presenting with BL at the nasopharynx and anterior skull base with intracranial invasion. The objective for reporting of this case report is to describe the rarity of location, unusual clinical presentations, and management of the BL. As BL is an aggressive tumor and considered a serious clinical condition, so requires timely diagnosis for prompt and appropriate treatment.
