‘Tumours of the haematopoietic system’ examines the epidemiology, the pathogenesis, and the clinical features of adult and childhood primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSLs), extranodal forms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, as well as the histiocytoses included in the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of central nervous system (CNS) tumours. It reviews these features in the most common PCNSL, primary central nervous system diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, as well as the other rare histopathological PCNSL variants including lymphomatoid granulomatosis, T-cell lymphoma, anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma, natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, low-grade lymphoma, mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) of the dura, and Hodgkin lymphoma. The chapter also discusses clinical and anatomical PCNSL variants including vitreoretinal lymphoma, leptomeningeal lymphoma, intramedullary spinal cord lymphoma, intravascular lymphoma, and PCNSL in the immunocompromised host. It also reviews the CNS presentations of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and the following non-Langerhans cell histiocytoses: Erdheim–Chester disease, Rosai–Dorfman disease, juvenile xanthogranuloma, and histiocytic sarcoma. It is written for specialists and non-specialists managing these various conditions.
