Abstract

Intravascular malignant lymphomatosis is a rare disease that is uniformly fatal when disseminated. Chemotherapeutic and radiation therapy regimens have provided short‐term amelioration of symptoms but have not affected overall survival. We describe a patient with diffuse neurological symptoms who responded transiently but dramatically to plasmapheresis. This marked response warrants further evaluation of this therapy in intravascular malignant lymphomatosis.
