Extranodal nerve system involvement is seen in approximately 5% of the patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. It causes as primary or secondary infiltration of brain, leptomeninges, or peripheral nerves and the signs of spinal cord compression. Here we present a 67-year-old woman with advanced stage diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who developed foot-drop due to lumbosacral plexus involvement.

Keywords: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, Lumbosacral plexus, Foot-drop.

Ekstranodal sinir sistemi tutulumu Non-Hodgkin lenfomalı hastaların yaklaşık %5’inde görülmektedir. Primer ya da sekonder olarak beyin, leptomeninks, periferik sinir infiltrasyonuna ve bazen spinal kord bası bulgularına neden olabilir. Biz, ileri evre difüz büyük B-hücreli lenfomalı 67 yaşındaki kadında lumbosakral pleksus infiltrasyonu nedeniyle ortaya çıkan düşük ayak gelişimini sunuyoruz.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Difüz büyük B-hücreli lenfoma, Lumbosakral pleksus, Düşük ayak.
