Abstract

BACKGROUND Lymphomatoid granulomatosis [LYG] is an angiocentric, angiodestructive disease at the higher grade end of the spectrum of angiocentric immunoproliferative lesions. It primarily involves the lungs, but it may also involve several extrapulmonary sites including the central nervous system (CNS), skin, and kidneys. CASE DESCRIPTION Clinical presentation, radiology and treatment of LYG in a 12-year-old male child with multiple intracranial extraaxial lesions is described. A 12-year-old boy presented with sudden onset of left focal motor seizureswith associated history of headache and vomiting. Computerized tomographicscan of the brain suggested high-density, bilateral, parietal extraaxial lesions. On magnetic resonance imaging, the lesions were iso- to hyperintense on T1-weighted images and hyperintense on T2-weighted images. The lesionswere excised in two stages and histopathological examination confirmed thediagnosis. CONCLUSION LYG seldom involves the CNS exclusively. The present case demonstrates exclusive CNS involvement by LYG in a young boy. (C) 1999 by Elsevier Science Inc.
