Non Hodgkins lymphoma

Lymphoma may involve the upper and lower lids/conjunctiva, major lacrimal gland, or orbit. Most commonly it appears as a pink fleshy lesion on the conjunctiva. Occasionally it presents with bilateral involvement but with no other evidence of more widespread disease. It is important to carry out staging procedures including CT scan through the orbits.

Low-grade lymphoma with localized disease is treated with local radiotherapy; high-grade lymphoma with localized disease, with chemotherapy followed by local radiotherapy. Other stages are treated with chemotherapy. Radiotherapy technique and dose depend on the location, stage, and grade of the disease.
