Eosinophilic meningitis is a relatively rare entity which has been associated in the past with lymphomatous involvement of the central nervous system in only a single case of Hodgkin's disease (1). We report here what we believe to be the first case in association with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the brain.
The patient, a 26-year-old white woman, was diagnosed as having poorly differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma, convoluted cell type, from a cervical lymph node biopsy in August 1973. At that time there was lymphomatous involvement of the scalp, bilateral cervical, mediastinal, and upper paraaortic lymph nodes. She was treated with combination chemotherapy
