ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Intravascular lymphomatosis (IVL)

History: This 52 year old man developed generalized malaise, low grade fever, subtle mental status changes, and generalized weakness over a three month period. He also developed mild anemia and enlargement of his spleen.

Findings: MRI showed multiple white matter lesions. One of the lesions was biopsied about 6 months after the onset of his illness.

Exam: Protein electrophoresis revealed a polyclonal gammopathy and bone marrow examination was suggestive of either a myeloproliferative or dysplastic syndrome. His mental status continued to deteriorate and he became unable to stand or walk without assistance.

No MeSH data available.
