  Abstract:
  Paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis is uncommon neurological side effect of cancer in the absence of direct effect of primary tumor or metastasis, side effects of treatment or metabolic dysfunctions (6). Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma triggers such side effect very rarely. We present a case of a young adult with complete clinical course of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with an episode of behavioral disturbances and MRI features which were pathognomonic for paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis.
  Key words: Limbic Encephalitis; Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin
