Primary and Borderline Brain Lymphosarcoma: A Neuropathological Review of Nine Cases

  • Jean-François Foncin
  • Jean-Noël Faucher
Part of the Acta Neuropathologica book series (NEUROPATHOLOGIC, volume 6)

Summary

Brain lymphosarcoma may be dev. d. d into the circumscribed forms, surrounded by marked oedema with fibrin, and the diffuse or infiltrating forms. Cytology of the former is more uniformly lymphocytic, its clinical course is more rapidly fatal. Anatomically primary diffuse lymphosarcoma of the brain may be secondary to ‘cured’ systemic lymphoma.
