  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD), a systemic histioproliferative disorder, was first described by Rosai and Dorfman in 1969. However, only 41 cases involving the central nervous system have been reported. The authors present a rare case of RDD with multiple intracranial and spinal lesions mimicking multiple meningioma.

A 59-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a history of bilateral visual impairment. MRI demonstrated multiple central nervous system lesions in the suprasellar region, right temporal convexity, left frontal convexity, left cerebello-pontine angle and C5 level of the spinal cord.
