A sore throat, otalgia, and snoring are the common symptoms seen in children presenting to an otorhinolaryngological clinic. Sometimes, however, these symptoms may be suggestive of an aggressive malignancy. We present a rare case of Burkitt’s lymphoma of the tonsil in a young child, which initially manifested as a sore throat and otalgia.
