MAZZEI, J. A. et al. Síndrome de enmascaramiento en un paciente con un linfoma primario del sistema nervioso central. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2003, vol.63, n.6, pp. 724-728. ISSN 1669-9106.
We report the case of a 37-year-old, white male with a primary central nervous system lymphoma with multiple supra and infratentorial locations. The patient developed manifestations of intraocular inflammation secondary to the intracranial neoplasm (masquerade syndrome) and lymphocytopenia -with a low CD4 cell count- representing an immunodeficiency state which etiology was undiagnosed. The diagnosis of lymphoma was established by vitreous cytology. The patient died 10 months after the beginning of the symptoms.
