Lymphomatous meningitis (LM) is cancer that started as primary lymphoma and has spread to the lining of the spinal cord and brain (this lining is the meninges). LM is reported in 5% to 15% of patients with diffuse high-grade non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
LM is rarely curable. However, research has shown that treatment that starts soon after the disease is detected can help many patients. In some patients, early treatment can prevent or slow worsening of symptoms caused by growth of cancer in the meninges.
