  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 71-year-old female presented with posterior uveitis in the left eye of 3 weeks' duration. Intense vitreous opacity and exudate in the posterior fundus were main clinical features. Transscleral retinochor-oidal biopsy peformed 4 months later led to the diagnosis of T cell intraocular lymphoma. The patient later manifested involvements of central nervous system and bone marrow. Intraocular and central nervous system lesions subsided after radiation to the affected eye and the brain with additional intrathecal and intravenous chemotherapy. Intraocular lymphoma is a possibility in uveitis of unknown origin.
