Answer

Pediatric and adolescent patients with CNS lymphoma have better outcomes than do adults with this disease. [34] An Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score of 0-1 is associated with improved survival. Higher dose methotrexate is associated with slightly better response.
