Munakomi S, Bhattarai B, Srinivas B, Cherian I - F1000Res (2015)

Bottom Line: Post-operatively, the patient showed good recovery.He was then referred to the oncology unit for further chemo- and radiation therapy.A high index of suspicion should therefore be kept in order to diagnose the condition in a timely fashion and then plan for appropriate management since diffuse large cell lymphoma has a relatively benign clinical prognosis.

ABSTRACT
Primary dural lymphoma is a subentity of primary leptomeningeal lymphoma which represents 0.1% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Only five cases have been reported so far. We report a very rare case of primary dural-based lymphoma in a 14 year-old boy presenting with mass effect. The patient was managed with excision of the lesion and removal of the involved bone. Post-operatively, the patient showed good recovery. He was then referred to the oncology unit for further chemo- and radiation therapy. A high index of suspicion should therefore be kept in order to diagnose the condition in a timely fashion and then plan for appropriate management since diffuse large cell lymphoma has a relatively benign clinical prognosis.

Mentions: On initial examination at our ER room, the patient attained a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) of E2M4V2 with anisocoria on the left side. There were two scalp swellings on the left parietal and the frontal regions (Figure 1) which were soft and fluctuant. Serology performed was negative for human immuno-deficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B and C. Computed tomography (CT) scan of the head was performed, revealing a dural-based hyperintense lesion on the frontal and parietal region with subfalcine herniation (Figure 2 andFigure 3) and honeycomb appearance of the involved bone (Figure 4). Ultrasonography of the abdomen revealed no significant lymph nodes.
