A 49-year-old man developed bilateral sudden hearing loss followed by cerebral infarction and cytomegalovirus (CMV) encephalitis. Autopsy confirmed intravascular malignant lymphomatosis (IML). A literature review indicates that hearing loss can be the initial manifestation of IML and also that CMV infection is more than an opportunistic infection and may participate ...

A previously healthy 35-year-old man developed sudden diplopia after smoking "crack" cocaine. Neuroophthalmologic examination revealed findings consistent with a tegmental mesencephalic lesion which correlated closely with the computed tomographic documentation of a small midbrain hemorrhage.
