Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in the cranial vault is rare, particularly in children. This report describes a 12-year-old boy who had a palpable and painless occipital skull mass and left hypoglossal nerve paralysis as the initial manifestations of Burkitt's lymphoma. Plain radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging findings are presented.
