Ten patients with parenchymal CNS lymphoma received combination chemotherapy with dexamethasone, high-dose cytarabine, and cisplatin (DHAP), and additional therapy according to clinical circumstances. Two of four patients with primary CNS lymphoma achieved and remain in complete remission (CR). Four of six patients with CNS lymphoma at relapse also achieved CR. DHAP is active against CNS lymphoma. Further trials with DHAP, particularly in conjunction with other treatment modalities, are warranted.
