While central nervous system (CNS) disease must be managed to prevent neurologic morbidity and preserve quality of life, the survival of patients with secondary CNS lymphoma depends upon control of both CNS and systemic disease sites. Thus, an effective treatment for secondary CNS lymphoma must address both compartments. Types of CNS lymphoma. Lymphoma in the CNS is usually high-grade (fast-growing) and is most often a form of diffuse large B-cell -grade (slow-growing) lymphoma can also develop in or around the brain, but only around 1 in 20 cases of CNS lymphoma are a low-grade lymphoma.   This is a case of primary CNS lymphoma in a year-old female presenting with new onset seizures. The first image demonstrates a confluent FLAIR hyperintense lesion predominantly centered within.

Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a rare cancer accounting for less than 3% of primary brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors.

Primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma (PCNSL) is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that remains confined to the CNS neuroaxis during its natural history of disease and is therefore considered stage IE disease.

Primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma is defined as lymphoma limited to the cranial-spinal axis without systemic disease. An increasing incidence of this disease has been seen among patients with AIDS and among other immunocompromised persons.

Computed tomographic (CT) scans may show ring enhancement in 50% of AIDS patients while. Survival of patients with PCNSL given supportive care alone was reported to be months. 2 As conventional chemotherapy successfully used to treat diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in sites outside the central nervous system (CNS) proves largely ineffective in PCNSL because drugs do not cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB), the first treatment modality that met with some success was Cited by: 2.

DEFINITION • Primary Central nervous system lymphoma (PSCNL) is a NHL confined to craniospinal axis (brain leptomeninges spinal cord or eyes) without evidence of systemic spread.

• NHL sometimes spares the brain entirely and involves cranial nerve roots or cauda equina owing to primary infiltration of the leptomeninges.

Primary CNS lymphomas (PCNSL) are relatively uncommon tumors, accounting for % of all brain definition, there is no co-existing systemic disease at the time of diagnosis, distinguishing it from CNS involvement from systemic lymphoma (secondary CNS lymphoma).

On imaging, PCNSL characteristically is identified as a CT hyperdense enhancing supratentorial mass, with MRI T1. This is also known as primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma or primary cerebral lymphoma. It is a rare type of lymphoma. Primary means that the lymphoma started in the lymph tissue of the brain or the spinal cord.
