Abstract

Neurolymphomatosis, which is defined as a peripheral nerve infiltration of lymphoma, is an infrequent complication of systemic lymphoma and the isolated involvement of the peripheral nerve as a sign of recurrence is very rare. Here, we report a case with neurolymphomatosis presented as a mononeuropathy multiplex and is the first reported case in Korea. With potent chemotherapy, the blood-nerve barrier may have a critical role in the isolated recurrence of lymphoma in the peripheral nervous system.
