Primary cerebral lymphoma
Primary cerebral lymphoma (or primary central nervous system lymphoma) is a form of NHL. It is very rare in immunocompetent people, with an incidence of 5-30 cases per million person-years. However the incidence in immunocompromised individuals is greatly increased, up to 100 per million person-years.
Treatment of AIDS patients with antiretroviral drugs reduces the incidence of primary cerebral lymphoma.
The incidence of Hodgkin's disease in the general population is about 10-30 per million person-years. This increases to 170 per million person-years in HIV positive patients.
