Abstract

We describe a 72-year-old woman with striking cutaneous telangiectatic lesions that chronologically preceded presentation with cauda equina syndrome. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) was confirmed on skin biopsies from plaques on the abdominal wall and left ankle, the possibilities including primary cutaneous DLBCL leg-type or systemic DLBCL. We speculate that this clinical appearance may arise due to lymphatic or vascular congestion resulting from the dense lymphoid infiltrate in this case.
