Primary CNS Lymphoma in Seropositive Child

S Chakre, S Bandichhode
Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma (PCNSL) is an extremely rare condition in childhood as compared to adults. It is seen in immunocompromised patients. We report the case of PCNSL in a child in Civil Hospital, Solapur which is a district anti-retroviral treatment (ART) centre. This 15 months old child presented with focal neurological deficit. The CT and MRI scan were suggestive of PCNSL. Stereostatic biopsy could not be done in this child. But CSF study showed 20 cells and all were lymphoblasts.
