Anterior Chamber Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma of the Iris Masquerading as Uveitis-Glaucoma-Hyphema Syndrome



Anterior Chamber Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma of the Iris Masquerading as Uveitis-Glaucoma-Hyphema Syndrome



Ocular Oncology and Pathology 2(4): 230-233



To report a case of iris non-Hodgkin lymphoma initially thought to be uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema (UGH) syndrome. We reviewed the clinical, radiographic, and histopathologic findings in a patient with recurrent hyphemas and increased ocular pressure who eventually was found to have a rapidly growing iris mass. An 89-year-old man with a history of cataract extraction and mantle cell lymphoma developed recurrent hyphema, which was subsequently revealed to be due to an iris mass. A biopsy revealed non-Hodgkin lymphoma that could not be formally subclassified but was suspicious for mantle cell lymphoma. The tumor showed a partial response to ibrutinib. Iris lymphoma can masquerade as a cause of recurrent hyphema after cataract extraction. Ophthalmologists should be aware of this presentation, especially in patients with a history of lymphoma.
