LETM is a standard syndrome and the prognosis of CNS lymphoma is just not normally thought of within the record of differentials. Main CNS lymphoma can current as longitudinally in depth transverse myelopathy. Failure to suspect and consider results in delay in prognosis and therapy. PCNSL could also be non distinction enhancing on gadolinium enhanced MRI. CSF evaluation needs to be carried out ideally earlier than beginning corticosteroids as it’s common apply in therapy of transverse myelitis, as steroids might result in transient enchancment and masks the proper prognosis. Repeated CSF examinations could also be wanted to clinch the prognosis.
