Summary

A case of reticulum cell sarcoma associated with involvement of the central nervous system was presented. This seems to be an atypical case of reticulum cell sarcoma for the following reasons.
  1. 1.

    Hepatosplenomegaly and enlarged lymph nodes were not observ. d. through the entire clinical course. The main abnormalities were psycho-neurological.

     
  2. 2.

    These cells did not form a tumour mass, but infiltrated diffucely into the central nervous system and extraneural sites, and the primary focus could not be determined. Four cases of reticulum cell sarcoma in Japan, in which the initial symptoms were of neurological involvement, are reviewed.
