 Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is colloquially called ‘the great imitator’ due to its diverse radiographic appearances that mimic a variety of other lesions such as high-grade glioma, tumefactive demyelination, infection and granulomatous disease. In this context, it is important to consider the radiographic and clinical nuances of diagnosing this rare and enigmatic entity. In this monograph, we crystallize key elements of our clinical thought process and offer selected references from the literature to guide the reader in cultivating their fund of knowledge on this subject.
