Abstract

We present a patient with subacute progressive paraparesis secondary to intravascular lymphoma restricted to the spinal cord where initial laboratory and imaging studies were inconclusive. We emphasise the importance of a systematic approach to the diagnosis and highlight the utility of spinal cord biopsy to establish the definitive diagnosis of this rare but treatable illness.
