Multimodality imaging of primary CNS lymphoma in immunocompetent patients
Central Nervous System Neoplasms
Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) belongs to the group of extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and the management of the disease is radically different from other central nervous system neoplasms. Owing to its varied appearance on imaging, diagnosis of PCNSL can be challenging. The purpose of this pictorial review is to depict the brain findings of PCNSL during initial diagnosis in immunocompetent individuals. Multimodal imaging integrating advanced sequences can facilitate differentiation of PCNSL from other CNS neoplasms.
