Follicular lymphoma presenting with leptomeningeal disease.

Costa R, Costa R, Costa R - Case Rep Hematol (2014)

Bottom Line: Follicular lymphoma is generally an indolent B cell lymphoproliferative disorder of transformed follicular center B cells.Central nervous system metastasis is a very rare complication portending a very poor prognosis.We report a rare case of follicular lymphoma presenting with leptomeningeal involvement achieving a complete remission after initial therapy.

fig2: Computerized tomography showing a liver mass.

Mentions: Computerized tomography (CT) of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis revealed right axillary, left inguinal, and retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy. Presacral and liver masses were noted (Figures 1 and 2). There were multiple osteolytic bony lesions. MRI of the brain, cervical, and thoracic spines revealed diffuse osseous metastatic lesions. Subtle patchy areas of enhancement were noted along the cord. Linear enhancement was noted along the third and fifth cranial nerves.
