Brain lymphosarcoma may be divided into the circumscribed forms, surrounded by marked oedema with fibrin, and the diffuse or infiltrating forms. Cytology of the former is more uniformly lymphocytic, its clinical course is more rapidly fatal. Anatomically primary diffuse lymphosarcoma of the brain may be secondary to 'cured' systemic lymphoma.
