Abstract

Microglioma accounts for 0.8-1.5% of primary brain tumors. Eight cases of primary lymphoma of brain are presented. 50% of the patients demonstrated unusual computed tomographic appearances. These patients were divided into three groups depending on clinical outcome. Survival seems to be related to treatment modality. Longest survival times were in patients treated with radiation alone or radiation following biopsy.
