Primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs) are mainly B-cells lymphomas. A risk factor for the development of PCNSL is immunodeficiency, which includes congenital disorders, iatrogenic immunosuppression, and HIV. The clinical course is rapidly fatal; these patients usually present signs of increased intracranial pressure, nausea, papilledema, vomiting, and neurological and neuropsychiatric symptoms. PCNSL may have a characteristic appearance on CT and MR imaging. DWI sequences and MR spectroscopy may help to differentiate CNS lymphomas from other brain lesions.

Abstract

Primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs) are mainly B-cells lymphomas. A risk factor for the development of PCNSL is immunodeficiency, which includes congenital disorders, iatrogenic immunosuppression, and HIV. The clinical course is rapidly fatal; these patients usually present signs of increased intracranial pressure, nausea, papilledema, vomiting, and neurological and neuropsychiatric symptoms. PCNSL may have a characteristic appearance on CT and MR imaging. DWI sequences and MR spectroscopy may help to differentiate CNS lymphomas from other brain lesions. In this paper, we report a case of a 23-year-old man with T-primary central nervous system lymphoma presenting with a mass in the right frontotemporal lobe. We describe clinical, CT, and MRI findings. Diagnosis was confirmed by stereotactic biopsy of the lesion.
