Abstract

Cryptococcomas and primary central nervous system lymphomas are rarely seen together in a single mass in patients diagnosed with acquired immune deficiency syndrome [Wang et al, Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi (Taipei) 1997;59:50-4]. This report details the unique presentation, diagnosis and subsequent medical and surgical treatments for this pair of conditions.
