Mycosis fungoides is a rare malignant T-cell lymphoma, involving mainly the skin. It can, in 50%-75% of cases, involve visceral organs and, in 11%-14% of cases, metastasize to the central nervous system. The prognosis is poor. A case with cerebral involvement is presented and the relevant literature reviewed.
We describe the importance of collaboration between multiple surgical specialties in managing a complex case of sight-threatening severe proptosis in a young woman with type 2 neurofibromatosis (NF2) complicated by pre-existing contralateral blindness. Trans-nasal and lateral orbital surgical approaches were aided by stereotactic navigation to debulk a(More)
