• A 37-year-old man with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and cytomegalovirus retinitis developed primary intraocular and central nervous system lymphoma. Intraocular involvement was documented before death with vitrectomy. Autopsy demonstrated the presence of cytomegalovirus retinitis in the right eye and lymphoma in both eyes and the brain. We believe this is the first report of autopsy-confirmed primary intraocular lymphoma in a patient with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
