Abstract

ARIAS A., JOSÉ J.; ESCOBAR, LAURA  and  ASTORQUIZA, MARÍA HELENA. SYSTEMIC COMPROMISE FROM LARGE CELL INTRAVASCULAR LYMPHOMA. rev.fac.med [online]. 2008, vol.16, n.2, pp.226-231. ISSN 0121-5256.

This is the first case of intravascular large cell lymphoma diagnosed at the Hospital Militar de Bogota, in an adult female who presented with chronic fever, weight loss, constitutional symptoms and progressive motor deterioration for the previous 20 days to the point of paraplegia. A work up was carried out to rule out neoplastic diseases, infections or autoimmune diseases, but she died on the fourteen hospital day. The autopsy, performed 5 hours post mortem, showed an intravascular large cell malignancy, limited to the vascular spaces of multiple organs. The lymphomatous origin was confirmed posteriorly by immunochemical tests.

Keywords : lymphoma large B-cell diffuse; lymphoma B-cell.
