Answer

Patients occasionally develop symptomatic CNS involvement before diagnosis. Headache, meningismus, cranial nerve palsies, and altered sensorium may be observed. Although CNS involvement is uncommon at the time of diagnosis, patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (particularly SNCCL) occasionally present with symptoms suggestive of meningoencephalitis.
