Abstract

Systemic malignant lymphoma rarely presents as conjunctival masses. Biopsy of unusual cystic conjunctival masses from a 49-year-old woman showed malignant lymphoma. On subsequent examination, the patient was found to have disseminated systemic malignant lymphoma. Examination of possible predictive clinical features of the conjunctival lesions showed that these were of little value in diagnosing the systemic malignancy.
