  • Look Inside

 A 75-year-old female presented with decreased vision in her left eye since one month before. Her corre-cted visual acuity was 1.0 right and 0.3 left. Her left fundus showed exudates of various sizes and tumorous lesion in the temporal sector in addition to extensive exudative retinal detachment,retinal hemorrhages,and vitreous opacity. Cell dissemination developed in the anterior chamber one week later. Six weeks after her initial visit,the tumorous lesion enlarged further followed by remission of exudates and inflammatory features. Vitreous opacity increased 2 weeks later and the visual acuity decreased to hand motion. Vitreous biopsy led to the diagnosis of malignant lymphoma. Focal radiation induced scarring of fundus tumor and improvement of visual acuity to 0.2. This case illustrates that tumorous lesion may be the outstanding feature in intraocular malignant lymphoma.
