Testicular lymphoma manifesting as neurological symptoms due to secondary neurolymphomatosis: A case report

Nicholas Haslett, Adam Ulano, John C. DeWitt


Neurolymphomatosis is a rare manifestation of lymphoma presenting as diffuse invasion and involvement of peripheral and spinal nerves. Due to the common presenting symptomatology of neurologic complaints localizing to the affected peripheral nerve, lymphoma as the underlying etiology can be diffificult to diagnose. Here we present the case of a gentleman presenting with right extremity neuropathic symptoms, subsequently discovered to have diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of testiticular orgin after nerve biopsy revealed neurolymphomatous involvement of a spinal nerve. This case highlights the importance of the consideration of neurolymphomatosis in the work up of neuropathic symptoms, as well as the full assessment for the site of primary involvement.
