Abstract

Intravascular B-cell lymphoma is a rare type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that is characterized by a clonal proliferation of lymphoblasts within small blood vessels. Patients present with nonspecific symptoms and are often only given a diagnosis at autopsy. We report a case of intravascular B-cell lymphoma, characterized by pyrexia, anemia, thrombocytopenia, and mental status decline, without obvious cutaneous manifestations, that was diagnosed with blind skin biopsy.
