Abstract

Primary lymphomas of the CNS are rare. However the incidence of these lesions has increased recently. These tumors are often situated in the thalamus and basal ganglia, but can be multifocal. The treatment for primary CNS lymphoma is radiotherapy alone or in association with chemotherapy. Because the associated morbidity is very low stereotactic biopsy is an ideal method for determining the histologic diagnosis in patients with suspected CNS lymphoma. The authors present a study of 49 patients with primary CNS lymphomas in which a stereotactic biopsy was performed.
