The article presents the case of a 76-year-old woman with massive transcalvarial lymphoma. The patient had a two week history of left-sided hemiparesis which has been thought to be caused by stroke. The primary cerebral lymphoma only accounts a percent of intracranial neoplasm which has increased as a result of immunosuppression.
