ABSTRACT
Primary malignant lymphoma of the central nervous system which is characterized by high radiosensitiveness is rarely reported in the literature. We have experienced a case of recurred cerebellar lymphoma whose criginal site was septal area. Though septal tumor disappeared completely after radiation, a large cerebellar tumor was found 2 years thereafter. After decompressive suboccipital craniectomy and partial tumor removal the patient's general condition improved so secondary radiation and chemotherapy were started. In the course of port-op therapy, the patient abruptly deteriorated and succumbed.
