AIDS-related diffuse large B-cell lymphoma

A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

AIDS-related diffuse large B-cell lymphomas are one of the immunodeficiency-associated CNS lymphomas, and in western countries represented a dramatic increase in primary CNS lymphoma during the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s, although the incidence is likely lower in patients treated with HAART 1

Like other immunodeficiency-associated CNS lymphomas, AIDS-related lymphomas tend to be EBV-related 1

Imaging is similar to other immunodeficiency-associated CNS lymphomas, with tumours more likely to be necrotic, heterogeneous and multifocal 1

A particularly challenging differential diagnosis is cerebral toxoplasmosis. See cerebral toxoplasmosis vs primary CNS lymphoma.
