Abstract

Intravascular lymphomatosis (IL) is a variant of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with an predilection for the CNS. Most cases are not diagnosed until postmortem. IL is characterized by neoplastic proliferation of lymphoid cells within the lumen of small veins and arteries with minimal involvement of the parenchyma. We experienced a 62-year-old woman who presented with seizure and fever associated with anemia, elevated LDH and beta 2-microglobulin without systemic involvement. This report illustrates the diagnostic challenge of this rare disorder with a grave prognosis. (J Korean Neurol Assoc 19(4):413~416, 2001)
