Microglioma with paraproteinaemia

J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry. 1974 Jul;37(7):835-40. doi: 10.1136/jnnp.37.7.835.

Abstract

A case is reported in which a solitary intracerebral tumour of lymphoreticular cells (microglioma, reticulum cell sarcoma) was associated with the presence of a serum paraprotein. Extensive investigation failed to show any evidence of extracerebral reticulosis. Response of the paraprotein to treatment of the tumour is described.
