Abstract


Neurolymphomatosis is characterized by direct infiltration of the central nervous system, nerve roots / plexus or peripheral nerves by a hematological neoplasm. When secondary, it occurs as relapse or progression of lymphoma or leukemia previously diagnosed. The involvement of cranial nerves by hematological diseases is an uncommon finding, with imaging exams, notably magnetic resonance imaging, playing an important role in identifying compatible findings.
