Hi Bro are Lower Leg weakness and Occasional Vomiting the only presenting symptoms? Did u elicit any other symptoms or signs in this patient? I think its impossible to make a diagnosis with these two symptoms. Moreover, I guess CNS Lymphoma is rather a rare case. Am I right bro?

I guess it might be very difficult. Sometimes I wonder how you doctor cope up with this day in and day out.
