Answer

Regimens for concurrent presentation with CNS disease are as follows:

  • Parenchymal: 3 g/m 2 or more of systemic methotrexate given on day 15 of a 21-day R-CHOP cycle with growth factor support
  • Leptomeningeal: Intrathecal methotrexate/cytarabine; consider Ommaya reservoir placement and/or systemic methotrexate (3–3.5 g/m 2)
