Intra-vascular lymphoma is usually reported as a rare and fatal disorder. We describe here the first case of an intra-vascular lymphoma revealed by a nephrotic syndrome for which a durable remission has been obtained by 8 cycles of bi-mensual CHOP and Rituximab therapy. In this report, 18 fluorodesoxyglucose tomoscintigraphy is discussed as a tool for intra-vascular lymphoma extension and follow-up.
