Unlike many other childhood cancers, genomic abnor-
malities are not used in the clinical management of paediatric Bur-
kitt lymphoma (BL) and few prognostic biomarkers have been
identified. In sporadic BL gain of chromosome 7 and deletion of 13q
are the only abnormalities that have been associated with an adverse
prognosis in the context of a clinical trial. Gains of 13q have also
been reported, including gain of the miR17HG locus, but the prog-
nostic value in endemic BL is unknown
