Diagnostic Yield and Safety of Brain Biopsy for Suspected Primary Central Nervous System Angiitis Brief Reports
Conclusions— Brain biopsy leads to pathological confirmation of vasculitis in a minority of suspected PACNS cases but alternative diagnoses are often identified. Importantly, rare but meaningful complications may occur.
Objective The study is to investigate the application of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) PET/computerized tomography (CT) for the evaluation of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).
