The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of F-fluoro-deoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for evaluating the ocular adnexal lymphoma treatment responses.We retrospectively reviewed data for 9 histologically confirmed cases of malignant lymphoma. All patients had at least one ocular adnexal tumor site and underwent FDG PET/CT before and after treatment. Patients' histological disease subtypes included diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (n = 3), mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (n = 2), follicular lymphoma (n = 1), NK/T-cell lymphoma (n = 1), lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (n = 1), and Hodgkin lymphoma (n = 1)...

Amyloidosis is a disorder characterized by the deposition of insoluble abnormal proteins in the extracellular space. It may occur as a localized lesion or as a systemic disease involving multiple organs and systems. Localized conjunctival amyloidosis is rare and is less frequently associated with systemic involvement. Although amyloidosis itself is a benign lesion involvement of multiple organs and systems is associated with poor prognosis. Diagnosis of amyloidosis is made on biopsy specimens with Congo red staining for the appearance of apple-green birefringence under polarized light microscopy...

AIM: To determine population-based incidence of conjunctival tumours in Olmsted County, Minnesota. METHODS: The Rochester Epidemiology Project medical record linkage system was used to identify patients with conjunctival tumours in Olmsted County (1 January 1980 to 31 December 2015). Records were reviewed for demographics, types of tumours, histopathology, treatment and clinical course. Incidence rate of all tumours was calculated per 1 000 000 person-years. Poisson regression analysis was used to assess changes in incidence over time...

PURPOSE: Primary ocular adnexal lymphomas are cured by radiotherapy; however, complications are frequent and relapses may occur. In this case, we aimed to report the efficacy and safety of extended systemic rituximab (anti-CD 20 monoclonal antibody) therapy of conjunctival mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. METHODS: In the standard regimen, rituximab is used as four consecutive weekly infusions of 375 mg/m2 in patients with low-grade lymphomas. We treated a patient who had bilateral conjunctival MALT lymphoma with rituximab 375 mg/m2 intravenously once weekly for 10 weeks as a first-line therapy...

Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is a peripheral T-cell lymphoma caused by human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 infection. Although conjunctival lymphoma is commonly reported with B-cell lymphoma, it rarely occurs in cases of ATLL. A 73-year-old Japanese female patient was admitted to our institution with evidence of abnormal lymphocytes, lymphadenopathy, and lung nodular lesions. Acute type ATLL was diagnosed, and therapy following the mLSG15 protocol was initiated. At the end of the second course, new bone lesions were detected...

To summarize actual knowledge on epidemiology, etiology, pathology, clinical apparence and treatment of ocular surface squamous neoplasias. We summarize up-to-date literature on conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia and invasive squamous cell carcinoma and present some own cases. Ocular surface squamous neoplasia is the most common malignant ocular surface tumor and the third most common ocular malignancy following malignant melanoma and lymphoma. In spite of its low malignant potential, in advanced stages it may reduce visual acuity significantly or even the eye globe has to be removed...

BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy is a commonly used treatment for limited-stage ocular adnexal mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (OAML) but showed a substantial relapse risk if the disease involves beyond-conjunctiva or bilateral conjunctivae. Systemic chemoimmunotherapy may be an alternative frontline therapy for the limited disease with those adverse prognostic factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We designed a multicenter, phase II study of the chemoimmunotherapy, rituximab, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone (R-CVP) for the treatment of patients with limited-stage OAML with bilateral or beyond-conjunctival involvement...

Natural killer/T-cell lymphomas are extremely rare and carry high mortality rates. Epidemiologically, these cancers tend to affect mainly Asian and South American patients and are associated with Epstein-Barr virus seropositivity. This report details a 78-year-old Vietnamese woman who presented initially with vitritis of unknown cause, but later developed proptosis and conjunctival involvement as her disease spread. Biopsies of the orbit, ethmoid sinus, and conjunctiva were found to be significant for natural killer/T-cell lymphoma...

This article is a review of diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities in common epibulbar malignant tumors, such as basal cell carcinoma, conjunctival lymphoma, squamous cell carcinoma and conjunctival melanoma. Most importantly, for every tumor patient there is a detailed anamnesis, split lamp examination and photo documentation. Further regular controls after therapy are required due to the risk of recurrences.Basal cell carcinoma is the most common tumor of the periocular skin, divided into three subtypes (nodular, superficial and morphea)...

Ocular adnexal lymphoma and intraocular lymphoma, whether occurring simultaneously or sequentially, are often similar to associated systemic lymphoma. We describe 4 cases of ocular adnexal lymphoma or intraocular lymphoma with a dissimilar systemic lymphoma. Two of the cases represent Richter transformation of chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small-cell lymphoma into diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. In the third patient, conjunctival extranodal marginal zone lymphoma developed following treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma...

Conjunctival tumors encompass a broad range of diagnoses. The 3 most important malignant tumors include ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) (14%), melanoma (12%), and lymphoma (7%). Conjunctival malignancies are rarely found in children. Regarding OSSN, pre-disposing conditions include chronic solar radiation, immune deficiency (HIV), organ transplant, autoimmune conditions, xeroderma pigmentosum, and chronic exposure to cigarette smoke. OSSN is managed surgically or with topical/injection immunotherapy or chemotherapy...
