Abstract

Of 325 consecutive cases of non-Hodgkin's malignant lymphomas, 8 patients (2.4%) showed orbital presentation. The clinicopathologic and immunologic analysis of the eight patients revealed characteristic biologic features. Despite the apparently isolated orbital presentation, all cases had subclinical systemic disease. Seven of the eight cases exhibited lymphoplasmacytic/cytoid features, with concurrent type II cryoblobulinemia in five of them. In addition, during their clinical coure, five patients showed single or multiple subcutaneous nodules with the same histologic and immunologic pattern as the orbital tumor. This study demonstrates that most orbital lymphomas share particular clinicopathologic and immunologic features, suggesting an origin from a B-cell subset with preferential homing to orbital tissues and subcutis.
