FELIPE, Marília Sena de; ALVES, Chrystian Junqueira  and  FARIAS, Rogerio Estevam. Intravascular large B cell lymphoma: impairment of bilateral adrenal in young woman. J. Bras. Patol. Med. Lab. [online]. 2010, vol.46, n.1, pp.41-45. ISSN 1676-2444.

The Intravascular Large B-cell Lymphoma (IVLBCL) is a rare disease characterized by neoplastic proliferation of lymphoid cells within capillaries. We report a case of IVLBCL in a young female patient with bilateral involvement of the adrenal gland. Immunohistochemical examination confirmed IVLBCL. The relationship between endocrine organs and lymphoid cells is a hypothesis to explain the correlation observed between IVLBCL and the involvement of the adrenal gland. Moreover, the association between IVLBCL and the described symptomatology seems to reflect a pattern that may assist in a more effective diagnosis.

Keywords : Non-Hodgkin lymphoma; B-cell lymphoma; Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma; Diffuse histiocytic lymphoma.
