Abstract

Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL), a highly malignant and infrequent tumor, is rarely found within the fourth ventricle. Here we report a case of isolated lymphoma within the fourth ventricle: a 61-year-old male presented with headache, mental disorder, abnormal gait and urinary incontinence. Based on the clinical symptoms and neuroimage, He was initially diagnosed as choroid plexus papilloma. However, post-surgery pathology corrected the diagnosis as a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. To the best of our knowledge, only nine cases are documented in the literature and all of them were initially diagnosed as other tumours or not determined. Therefore, Thesis unconventional location and atypical clinical manifestation of PCNSL in the fourth ventricle should be included on the list of differential diagnosis of the fourth ventricle tumors.
