Parenchymal brain leukemia. Case report: problems related to the diagnosis and treatment.

A case of intracerebral nodular leukemic mass that developed in a girl eight years after a diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and 18 months after second discontinuation of therapy for a central nervous system (CNS) relapse is reported. The morphologic picture and the long time that elapsed from the diagnosis raised the suspicion of a cerebral neoplasm; the immediate and dramatic effect of steroid treatment, on the contrary, indicated the presence of a leukemic infiltration and in the meantime, a bone marrow relapse occurred. The patient soon after received high-dose Cytosine Arabinoside (HD ARA C) + Vincristine (VCR) + Levo-Asparaginase (L-ASE) + Prednisone (PDN) without any intrathecal antiblastic drug. We observed a neurological recovery and a complete disappearance of the mass. After consolidation of the remission the patient began an ablative regimen for bone marrow transplantation. The efficacy of HD ARA C in the treatment of the intracerebral nodular leukemic mass is emphasized.[1]
