BACKGROUND Primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs) are rare tumors, mostly represented by diffuse large B cells. PCNSLs with a T phenotype are less frequently reported; even rarer are anaplastic large cell lymphomas (ALCLs). PCNSL ALCLs are commonly represented, like their systemic counterpart, by a variably prevalent amount of large pleomorphic tumor cells ('hallmark cells'), and this feature enhances their recognition. Patient and methods We report the first case of primary brain… CONTINUE READING
