Summary

C. T. scans of 19 patients with histologically proved primary lymphoma of the brain were reviewed and divided into three groups: solitary tumors (58%), multifocal tumors (31,5%), diffuse involvement of the brain (10,5%). The C. T. differential diagnosis are manifold, including meningioma, glioma, metastases, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. Arteriography is not specific, but, correlation with C. T. results may suggest the correct diagnosis and encourage biopsy. The radiosensitivity of primary lymphoma of the brain emphasizes, the importance of an early diagnosis.
