changes and altered affect are relatively common modes of presentation, given the relatively frequent involvement of the frontal lobes (Table 16.6). Seizure was a first presenting symptom in 13% of one series of 66 patients [16]. The time elapsing between onset of symptoms and diagnosis is often short - on the order of 2-3 months. The constellation of symptoms is not noticeably different between immuno-competent and immunocompromised patients.

Murray et al. found the majority of lesions to be solitary and supratentorial (52.1%), with the most frequent sites of involvement being frontal (26%), temporal (15%) and parietal (14%) [18]. Diencephalic and infratentorial lesions, particularly in the cerebellum (11%), were also seen. The tumor is solitary almost twice as often as it is multifocal. Diffuse meningeal disease has also been described and accounted for 12% of cases in the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) series of 66 patients [16].
