Tissue diagnosis with vitreous and/or retinal biopsy usually confirms the diagnosis of primary vitreoretinal lymphoma. Multiple imaging modalities like fundus fluorescein angiography, fundus autofluorescence, and optical coherence tomography have been used to support the diagnosis of vitreoretinal lymphoma. We report a case of a 74-year-old lady diagnosed with primary vitreoretinal lymphoma showing a novel fluorescein angiographic finding of capillary dropout. We hypothesize that this clinical finding on the fluorescein angiogram may be due to the occlusion of the retinal vasculature by the malignant tumor cells...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of primary vitreoretinal lymphoma (PVRL) poses significant difficulties; presenting features are non-specific and confirmation usually necessitates invasive vitreoretinal biopsy. Diagnosis is often delayed, resulting in increased morbidity and mortality. Non-invasive imaging modalities such as spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) offer simple and rapid aids to diagnosis. We present characteristic SD-OCT images of patients with biopsy-positive PVRL and propose a number of typical features, which we believe are useful in identifying these lesions at an early stage...

Primary intraocular lymphomas are rare tumours that can be further subdivided into primary vitreoretinal and the even rarer primary uveal lymphoma. The incidence of primary vitreoretinal lymphoma (PVRL) has increased during the last few decades. Differential diagnostic distinction between lymphoma and posterior uveitis is often difficult, so that adequate diagnosis and treatment is often delayed. This is fatal, because PVRL is often associated with primary central nervous lymphoma. To confirm the diagnosis, prior treatment of cytological or histological detection of lymphoma cells is the gold standard...

PURPOSE: To determine a threshold for interleukin (IL)-10 and IL-10/IL-6 ratio in the aqueous humor (AH) and the vitreous for the screening of vitreoretinal lymphoma (VRL). METHODS: One hundred nineteen patients for whom IL-10 and IL-6 in the AH and/or vitreous had been measured were included: 16 patients with a final diagnosis of VRL and 103 patients with final diagnosis of uveitis. Groups were compared according to IL-10 and IL-6 levels and demographic data. RESULTS: In patients with VRL (Group 1), mean IL-10 values were 5,636 pg/mL, and in patients with uveitis (Group 2), 6...

The etiology of sarcoidosis is still obscure; however, Mycobacteria and Propionibacterium acnes are considered the most implicated etiological agent for sarcoidosis. To investigate whether P. acnes is an etiological agent for sarcoid uveitis, we analyzed the frequency of P. acnes detected within the biopsied retinas from patients with ocular sarcoidosis by immunohistochemistry with a P. acnes-specific monoclonal antibody (PAB antibody). Eleven patients (12 eyes) with sarcoid uveitis were enrolled in this study...

The eye and the ocular adnexae are rare sites for malignant non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Based on their anatomical location, intraocular lymphomas must be discerned from NHL of adnexal structures including conjunctiva, lacrimal gland, and orbit. Whereas the latter group mostly consists of indolent extranodal marginal zone B‑cell lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type or secondary manifestations of systemic NHL, most primary intraocular lymphomas are classified as diffuse large B‑cell lymphomas (DLBCL) and are considered a variant of primary DLBCL of the central nervous system...

REVIEW
Iguaracyra Araujo, Sarah E Coupland
Primary vitreoretinal lymphoma (PVRL) is the most common intraocular lymphoma occurring in the eye. It is a high-grade typically B-cell malignancy, arising in the retina, and is often associated with central nervous system (CNS) disease and thereby a poor prognosis. It needs to be distinguished from choroidal low-grade B-cell lymphomas, which do not disseminate to the brain and have a good prognosis. Because of the rarity of PVRL, information is lacking regarding its true incidence, its geographical or ethnic variation, and underlying risk factors apart from immunosuppression associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Epstein Barr virus...

Lymphoproliferative diseases of the central nervous system are rare, diagnostics and treatment are accordingly challenging. Since the introduction of the 2008 WHO lymphoma classification, primary CNS DLBCL - also covering the associated primary ocular (vitreoretinal) lymphoma - is a separate entity. The special localization is related with a series of newly recognized genetic, genomic and immunologic features directing to the strong interaction between transformed lymphoma cells, neural tissue components and the local immune response...

Retinal diseases generally are vision-threatening conditions that warrant appropriate clinical decision-making which currently solely dependents upon extensive clinical screening by specialized ophthalmologists. In the era where molecular assessment has improved dramatically, we aimed at the identification of biomarkers in 175 ocular fluids to classify four archetypical ocular conditions affecting the retina (age-related macular degeneration, idiopathic non-infectious uveitis, primary vitreoretinal lymphoma, and rhegmatogenous retinal detachment) with one single test...

BACKGROUND: Vitreoretinal lymphoma (VRL), the most common lymphoma of the eye, is a rare form of primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL). Most frequently a high-grade diffuse large B cell lymphoma, VRL can cause vision loss and its prognosis remains dismal: the overall survival time is 3 years after diagnosis. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are used but remain frequently ineffective, and no standardized treatment regimen exists. Furthermore, no biologically targeted treatments, based on the genetic profile of the tumor, are available, as VRL has hitherto not comprehensively been profiled...
