Abstract

TWELVE a study of 21 patients with lymphomatous tumors involving the eye from the Institute of Ophthalmology of Presbyterian Hospital, New York, and the Memorial Hospital for Cancer and Allied Diseases. Each of these tumors had been verified by biopsy and the patient had been followed for a period of four years. Four patients had had generalized disease before the ocular tumor was found; in 17 the tumor was thought to be primary in the region of the eye. However, it was later determined that 2 of these 17 patients had practically simultaneous onset of ocular and generalized lymphomatous disease. At that time, 5 of the 21 patients had died, 5 were alive with tumor, and 11 were alive without evidence of tumor, either local or general.

Particular interest was paid to a group of patients with subconjunctival lymphomas which had the same clinical appearance irrespective of the histologic type
