An update on therapy of primary central nervous system lymphoma.
Central Nervous System Neoplasms
The most important advance in primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma treatment has been the convincing data that high-dose methotrexate-based chemotherapy regimens improve survival compared to historical controls treated with radiotherapy alone. However, the optimal treatment approach is still unclear and therapy can be associated with long-term neurotoxicity. Current research focuses on maximizing survival while minimizing neurologic sequelae.
