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.

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.

Mentions: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was hazy. Cell count showed 253 cells/mm [3]. Glucose was 17 mg/dL (range, 45–75 mg/dL). Protein level was 265 mg/dL (range, 15–45 mg/dL). Cytology analysis revealed atypical lymphoid cells with cytologic features consistent with the previously diagnosed follicular lymphoma on lymph node biopsy (Figure 5).
