Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of intraocular non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) manifesting as persistent intermediate uveitis, facial mass, and Bell palsy. Design: Retrospective, interventional case report. Methods: A 51-year-old patient with persistent intermediate uveitis for 4 years is diagnosed with intraocular NHL after developing Bell palsy and a facial mass. Initial diagnostic vitrectomy was inconclusive. Results: Subsequent treatment with cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, prednisone, and rituximab resulted in regressed facial mass and improved visual acuity. Conclusion: NHL can manifest as latent Bell palsy and facial mass in addition to the more common symptoms of uveitis. Intraocular NHL should be suspected in any patient of any age with persistent uveitis.
