Abstract

We report a case of posterior reversible leukoencephalopathy (PRL) following the infusion of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) cryopreserved autologous stem cells in the setting of myeloablative chemotherapy in a patient with recurrent Ewing's sarcoma. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed white matter changes which resolved over the next 2 months.
