Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL), a subtype of extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, is a rare and usually fatal disease characterized by the presence of lymphoma cells in the lumina of small vessels. Obstruction of blood flow by tumor cells in different organs can cause a variety of clinical manifestations, including the nervous and respiratory systems and skin. Biopsy of the involved organs for pathologic study is needed for establishing the diagnosis. We report a case of intravascular LBCL presenting with an erythematous plaque and neurological problems. The diagnosis was established by pathologic study of a skin biopsy specimen.
