We present results of the diffuse sky background in the 50-190 \AA~waveband as observed by the Deep Survey telescope aboard the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE). This waveband corresponds to the Lexan/B filter of the telescope, and the data of interest were gathered when the telescope was pointed along the ecliptic plane between ecliptic longitudes 50$^\circ$ and 70$^\circ$ during the EUVE all-sky survey. This region of sky contains many spatial features in the hydrogen column density distribution (such as MBM clouds) as witnessed by the IRAS sky maps in the 100 $\mu m$ wavelength. We report results on spatial correlation studies between EUV data and IRAS data, and their implications on our understanding of the interstellar medium.
