Abstract

An instance of cerebral abscess presenting with episodes of palinopsia occurred in a patient suffering from acute myelogenous leukaemia. Palinopsia is a very uncommon symptom in cerebral disease. Review of hospital autopsy records for a decade revealed 280 other instances of haematological malignancy, in only one of which a cerebral abscess was also present.
