  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 52-year-old female developed a tumor mass. under the bulbar conjunctiva in the right eye and underwent surgery. Histological examina-tion of the tumor showed it to be malignant lymphoma (Type 1 after Reese) with germinal centers.

The remnant tumor tissue was located in the nasal upper corner of the right orbit and ex-tended posteriorly along the course of the frontal nerve. Histopathological picture of the extir-pated tumor mass from the orbit obtained at the second operation was that of inflammatory pseudotumor corresponding to Type 3 after Birsch Hirschfeld.
