We report a case of primary CNS lymphoma treated with high-dose methotrexate in the first line.

After disease progression the patient received cranial radiotherapy with concomitant temozolomide, followed by rituximab plus temozolomide, with complete remission of the disease maintained for at least two years and without major toxicity.
