CLINICAL CASE: A 49-year-old woman experienced a local relapse of a primary follicular lymphoma (FL) of the conjunctiva. She received 4 weekly intra-lesional injections followed by 6 monthly injections of rituximab (6mg/ml). A clinical response was achieved after first injection. No adverse ocular event or signs of lymphoma relapse were seen after 10 months of follow-up. DISCUSSION: Intralesional administration of rituximab for treating primary FL of the conjunctiva was an effective and safe therapeutic option; therefore it could be an alternative to other conventional treatments, such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy...

Infectious agents have been identified as a major cause of specific types of human cancers worldwide. Several microorganisms have been identified as potential aggravators of ocular adnexal neoplasms; however, given the rarity of these neoplasms, large epidemiological studies are difficult to coordinate. This study aimed to conduct an exhaustive search for pathogenic DNA in lymphoproliferative disorders (LPD) of the ocular adnexa in a total of 70 patients who were diagnosed with LPD of the ocular adnexa between 2008 and 2013...

The authors describe a 39-year-old woman treated with fingolimod for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis for 2 years who then developed a bilateral conjunctival mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. Fingolimod treatment for multiple sclerosis has been associated with lymphoma in 3 previously reported cases. This is the first case of ocular adnexal lymphoma presumed to be due to fingolimod. Given that ophthalmologists regularly monitor many patients on fingolimod for fingolimod-associated macular edema and ophthalmic manifestations of multiple sclerosis, the authors hope to alert physicians of the possibility of ocular adnexal lymphoma in these patients...

The aim of the present study was to report a rare case of single-clone, immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH)-rearranged mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma in the conjunctiva, with nasal cavity dissemination through the nasolacrimal duct. A 24-year-old female was diagnosed with MALT lymphoma of the nasal cavity at the Department of Otolaryngology, Wan Fang Medical Center, Taipei Medical University (Tapei, Taiwan) in October 2008. A biopsy of the relapsing conjunctival lesion revealed a MALT lymphoma by pathological staining, while a single-clone, IgH-rearranged tumor lesion in the nasal cavity and conjunctiva was confirmed using continuous sinus computed tomography scans and polymerase chain reaction...

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a distinct mesenchymal neoplasm of myofibroblastic spindle cells associated with an inflammatory infiltrate formed by lymphocytes, eosinophils, and plasma cells in a myxoid or collagenous stroma. This tumor has a predilection for children and young adults and most commonly occurs in the lungs, retroperitoneum, abdomen, and pelvis. Ocular and orbital involvement is exceedingly rare. We describe a case of IMT in a 7-year-old girl involving the cornea, conjunctiva, and the anterior orbit treated with crizotinib, resulting in complete tumor remission...

Background. Ocular involvement in mycosis fungoides (MF) cases occurs in one-third of patients with the eyelid being the most frequent site affected; however, conjunctival involvement is rarely reported. Herein, we report a rare case of conjunctival involvement of MF. Case Presentation. A 66-year-old man who was previously diagnosed with MF in 2010 and was treated presented in 2014 complaining of foreign body sensation and redness in both eyes. Slit lamp examination of both eyes showed erythematous conjunctival growth that extended circumferentially...

PURPOSE: Primary radiation therapy (RT) achieves excellent local control and overall survival when treating localized orbital lymphoma. However, evidence supporting irradiation of partial orbit volumes to spare nearby critical structures is lacking. We sought to investigate outcomes for patients with localized orbital lymphoma treated with partial orbit irradiation. METHODS AND MATERIALS: We retrospectively reviewed patients with orbital lymphoma treated with RT at our institution who met our inclusion criteria: biopsy-confirmed, low-grade lymphoma, localized disease, partial orbit treatment volumes, and follow-up >3months...

Herein we present the F-FDG PET/CT findings in conjunctival melanoma as a second primary cancer in a 56-year-old Taiwanese man with a history of small lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia and nasal cavity carcinoma under remission. The right eye lesion slowly progressed since noted by the patient himself 2 years ago, but he refused biopsy and further treatment including surgery. Either small lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia or conjunctival melanoma is extremely rare in Asians, left alone in combination with a third malignancy of nasal cavity carcinoma...
