    A case of syringomyelia involving the entire spinal cord secondary to a spinal intramedullary tumour is described. Cerebrospinal fluid cytology and microscopic evaluation of gross necropsy specimens revealed a primary large cell lymphoma of the central nervous system. In addition there was massive leptomenigeal lymphomatosis involving the cortex, brainstem, and cerebellum. No solitary intracranial mass lesion was found.
