An Update on Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma
Central Nervous System Neoplasms
The most important recent advance in treatment of primary central nervous system lymphoma has been the introduction of high-dose methotrexate-based chemotherapy. Convincing data demonstrate that the regimens of such chemotherapy improve survival compared with historical controls treated with radiotherapy alone. However, the optical treatment approach is still unclear and therapy can be associated with long-term neurotoxicity. Current research focuses on maximizing survival while minimizing neurologic sequelae.
