Clinical and radiologic remission in reticulum cell sarcoma of the brain.

Abstract

Two patients with cerebral reticulum cell sarcoma (CRCS) are reported in whom neurologic abnormalities and radiologic (computerized tomographic [CT] scan) evidence of tumor remitted. In one patient, remission followed craniectomy and corticosteroid therapy and lasted for eight months. In the other patient, at least four remissions occurred over a span of seven years, each in conjunction with the administration of corticosteroids. Corticosteroids may favorably alter the biologic activity of tumor tissue in some cases of CRCS, predisposing to clinical remission and disappearance of tumor on CT scan.
