Extranodal malignant lymphomas arising in the CNS in the absence of lymphoma outside the nervous system at the time of diagnosis; these tumours need to be differentiated from secondary involvement of the nervous system in systemic lymphomas. The incidence of PCNSL has markedly increased world-wide from 0.8-1.5% up to 6.6% of primary intracranial neoplasms.
The main interest of the study is to study the malignant lymphomas in the CNS. According to our study, there is a clear male predominance and further study has to be conducted to find out the demographic variations of the disease.
The sample size included 100 cases of intracranial neoplasms that turned in the Department of Medicine in KVJ Medical College, Sullia and different local private hospitals of Sullia and Mangalore.
Here was one case (1%) of Primary Central Nervous System lymphoma (PCNSL), Non-Hodgkin’s type is studied in a 50-year-old male which was located in left basifrontal region.
There is a clear male predominance and further study has to be conducted to find out the demographic variations of the disease.
