TAPIA E, Oscar  and  JIMENEZ P, Paula. Intravascular large B cell lymphoma: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2012, vol.140, n.2, pp.225-230. ISSN 0034-9887.

Intravascular large B cell lymphoma is a rare subtype of large cell lymphoma that is characterized by the proliferation of lymphoid cells within the lumina of small blood vessels. We report a 61-year-old male presenting paresis of both lower limbs, confusion and a history of weight loss. Magnetic resonance and CAT imaging studies showed multiple images of brain and cerebellar infarctions. Twenty days after admission, the patient died and the postmortem study demonstrated a multisystem intravascular large B cell lymphoma.

Keywords : Brain infarction; Lymphoma, non-Hodgkin; Magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
