Lymphoma of the central nervous system can present with a wide variety of clinical symptoms and imaging characteristics which can be challenging for radiologist as well as neurosurgeons to deal with. Primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) accounts for 1% of all primary brain tumors which is a rare variant of extranodal non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. We report a case primary central nervous system Non-Hodgkins lymphoma presenting a multiple intraventricular and periventricular masses in a 14 years young man with severe headache, convulsion and unsteady gait. The diagnosis was obtained by image guided surgical biopsy.
