Abstract

Basophilia and eosinophilia are common findings during an 'accelerated phase' of chronic myeloproliferative disorders, particularly chronic myelogenous leukemia. When these diseases involve the meninges, it is invariably as 'leukemic meningitis', usually during the blastic transformation to acute leukemia, and blasts are the primary cells found in the CSF. A case of an undifferentiated myeloproliferative disorder (Philadelphia chromosome negative) occurred, in which the terminal event was characterized by a severe infiltration of the meninges with basophils and, to a lesser extent, eosinophils, without the presence of leukemic blasts in a 40-year-old woman.
