BARBON GARCIA, JJ et al. Uveal lymphoid infiltration with systemic extension. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.3, pp.173-176. ISSN 0365-6691.

Case report: We report the case of a patient who was surgically treated in his right eye because of an uncontrollable glaucoma and a retinal detachment without retinal break. Ultrasound and computed tomography showed diffuse choroidal thickening. During 6 years of follow-up, he developed a major ocular and orbitary invasion and bone marrow infiltration. He was treated by enucleation and chemotherapy with apparent total remission. Discussion: Reactive lymphoid hyperplasia of the uvea consists of a lymphocytic proliferation that primarily involves the uveal tract. This process is regarded as a low malignant condition, but this case of late diagnosis showed a tendency to orbital and systemic extension.

Palabras clave : Uveal lymphoid infiltration; lymphoid hyperplasia; lymphoma.
