The tumor was completely eliminated, and the peritumoral sign abnormality was not current within the postoperative MRI. Histological examination revealed diffuse giant B cell lymphoma. Whereas mind MRI, bone marrow puncture, and 18F-fluorodeoxy-glucose positron emission tomography (18FDG-PET) of the entire physique had been carried out to search out out a main lesion, there have been no abnormalities. He underwent a high-dose methotrexate-based chemotherapy and an area irradiation remedy (40Gy). He has been alive for greater than two years for the reason that symptom onset, and with none proof of recurrence.
