Patients will be treated with systemic R-IDARAM plus intrathecal immunochemotherapy
Drug: R-IDARAM plus intrathecal chemotherapy
R-IDARAM comprised of rituximab 375 mg/m2 (day 1), idarubicin 10 mg/m2(day 2 and 3); dexamethasone 100 mg/m2 (12 h.infusion in day 2, 3 and 4); cytarabine 1 g/m2 (1 h. infusion in day 2 and 3); methotrexate 2 g/m2 (6 h. infusion in day 4 with folinic acid rescue).
