  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A clinicopathological review was made on nine cases of B cell malignant lymphoma of the ocular adnexa during the foregoing 12-year period. All cases were non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Eight cases were primary and in stage I . Three cases were in stage II. No detail was known in one case. Histopathologically, there were 3 cases of MALT lymphoma, 2 cases of large cell lymphoma, and one case each of small lymphocytic lymphoma, lymphoplasmacytoma and intermediate lymphocytic lymphoma (ILL) . Three cases were treated by radiation followed by recurrence in 2 cases. Three cases were treated by chemotherapy followed by recurrence in 1 case. One case was treated by systemic corticosteroid. Three cases were not treated. The findings suggest that malignant lymphoma of the ocular adnexa has a tendency to slowly develop and that complete cure is difficult.
