Abstract

Rosai-Dorfman disease is a benign lymphoproliferative disease with rare occurrence in the overall population. The characteristic findings of the disease are emperipolesis on microscopy and S-100 protein positivity on immunohistochemistry. The present report describes the case of a 57-year-old man who presented with repeated seizures, urinary retention, and ataxia. Satisfactory results were obtained with surgical treatment. The diagnosis was confirmed by immunohistochemistry.
