Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intravascular lymphoma is a rare subtype of diffuse large B cell lymphoma, characterized by proliferation of mature B cells within the lumina of small and medium vessels of many organs, without parenchymal involvement. The clinical phenotype is extremely variegated; moreover, neurological symptoms such as encephalopathy and focal neurological deficits occur and often coincide with disease's debut. We described the clinical course of a patient with intravascular diffuse large B cell lymphoma presented with subacute cognitive decline without focal signs, later associated to aspecific general symptoms that rapidly evolved to a severe inexplicable encephalopathy accompanied to systemic failure.
