lymphoproliferative disorders a group of malignant neoplasms arising from cells related to the common multipotential, primordial lymphoreticular cell that includes among others the lymphocytic, histiocytic, and monocytic leukemias, multiple myeloma, plasmacytoma, Hodgkin's disease, all lymphocytic lymphomas, and immunosecretory disorders associated with monoclonal gammopathy. An interrelationship with the myeloproliferative disorders is thought to exist.

The proapoptotic protein Bax is also expressed at high levels in CD30+ cutaneous lymphoproliferative diseases and may play a crucial role in mediating apoptosis of tumor cells.9 The CD30+ cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorders account for approximately 25% of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma cases.10 Black persons may be less affected by lymphomatoid papulosis than persons of other racial groups.

The reported clinical case is about a patient who developed CMV/EBV ventriculoencephalitis that, despite the virological response to antiviral therapy with ganciclovir and foscarnet, evolved to EBV-driven B cell lymphoproliferative disorder that is considered a "grey disorder" (neither benign nor malignant) that usually evolves to PCNSL [4].
