Abstract

A 75-year-old healthy woman developed uveitis and chorioretinal infiltrates OD compatible with reticulum cell sarcoma. She was admitted to hospital 18 months later with somnolence and confusion. Examination revealed diffuse white matter hypodensity on computed tomography and a persistent cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis. At necropsy reticulum cell sarcoma was found in the right globe and Aspergillus fumigatus was present in almost every other organ, including the brain.
