Autopsied case of primary malignant lymphoma of the central nervous system presenting an unusual clinical course and CT findings

Journal Article:

Abstract

A case of primary malignant lymphoma of the central nervous system was reported. A 58-year-old man was admitted because of diplopia in March, 1986. Last year in June he lost consciousness, accompanied by headache, vertigo, a floating sensation, and tinnitus, though his symptoms disappeared the next day. Last year in October and November, he complained of weakness of the left hand, but it soon disappeared. A neurological examination on admission revealed left trochlear nerve palsy, a decreased sensitivity to pain on the left side of the face and the opposite side of the body, and a mild left-side lack of coordination. A head CT scan and angiography showed no abnormalities. An examination of the CSF revealed increased protein with mild pleocytosis and IgG, but cytology was negative. After admission, he complained of left trigeminal neuralgia, but it disappeared upon steroid pulse therapy. When the steroids were tapered off, however, peripheral facialnerve palsy developed. Therefore, a second course of steroid pulse therapy was done, with some effect. In June, however, the patient became unconscious while the orally administered steroid was being tapered off. A head CT scan showed isodensity masses in the basal ganglia, the thalamus, and the periventricular white matter  More>>
