Hereditary multiple exostoses (HME) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the growth of multiple bony tumors. These tumors include benign osteochondromas and less commonly, malignant tumors that arise from transformation of exostoses into secondary osteosarcomas and chondrosarcomas [1,3]. There have been no reported cases of lymphoma in the pediatric HME population. We report a case of a 10 year old boy with HME who developed Burkitt lymphoma of the abdomen.
