Patients with AIDS-related lymphomas (ARL) may face an increased risk of central nervous system involvement (CNSi) compared to other lymphomas. Barta, MD, MS, MRCP, researchers report that CNSi - identified at the time of an ARL diagnosis - does not appear to have an impact on overall survival. Dr. The vast majority of patients - at least 80 percent, according to the National Cancer Institute - have stage IV disease at the time of presentation.
