Abstract

This article reviews the clinical features of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. Clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnostic testing, and staging evaluation in both immunocompetent and AIDS patients who have PCNSL are discussed. The differing role of biopsy in these two populations also is addressed.
