• Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas can simulate uveitis. Two patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma had anterior uveitis. Material was obtained from the enucleated eye in case 1, and from an inguinal lymph node in case 2. Immunologic evaluation of this material led to the diagnosis of peripheral T-cell lymphoma in both cases. Immunologic evaluation is useful in the examination of patients with lymphoma.
