Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: To report two cases of a mantle cell lymphoma presenting in the conjunctiva. Methods: Retrospective case reports. Results: Two patients with no prior oncologic history presented with salmon color conjunctival masses. One patient's diagnosis was significantly delayed as the mass was clinically diagnosed as MALT type lymphoma. The other patient's biopsy was misdiagnosed as a MALT lymphoma secondary to a lack of immunophenotyping. Conclusions: Although not previously recorded in the literature (Medline Search), Mantle Cell lymphoma can present as a conjunctival mass. The clinician should alert the pathologist if there is a clinical suspicion of mantle cell lymphoma and appropriate immunophenotying should be performed.
