Ovarian neoplasms are rare in children. Though ovarian involvement by malignant lymphoma is known to occur in late stages of disseminated nodal disease, primary ovarian lymphoma is a rare entity. We came across a case of a 9-year-old female who came with complaints of dull aching abdominal pain, mainly in the suprapubic region, low grade fever and abdominal distension since 20 days. Ultrasonography revealed two well-defined, mixed echogenic masses in both adnexae. Multiple well-defined mixed echogenic lesions were also seen on the surface of liver with omental thickening and nodularity. Computerized tomography as well as magnetic resonance imaging was done for further evaluation. Ultrasound guided biopsy was performed. The diagnosis of Burkitt's lymphoma involving bilateral ovaries was established after histological, immunohistochemistry, and tumor markers correlation.
