    Abstract

    The first case of a primary and solitary IgA (lambda) producing tumour (possibly a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) in the CNS is reported. Clinical and neuroimaging findings are described. Early diagnosis without brain biopsy and successful therapy were possible by CSF and serum immunoglobulin analysis which proved local paraprotein production restricted to the CNS.
