A 64-year-old female with recent-onset unilateral ocular hypertension and suspected anterior uveitis OS was treated with anti-glaucoma and corticosteroid eyedrops without benefit. Upon referral, visual acuity was 20/50. Heterochromia was noted. The iris was markedly thickened; there was corectopia, iris neovascularization, anterior chamber cellularity, and keratic precipitates [Figure 1]a. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) revealed solid iris infiltration filling the anterior chamber [[Figure 1]b, arrows]. There were no posterior segment or systemic abnormalities. Fine needle aspiration biopsy confirmed large B-cell lymphoma. Treatment with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisolone (R-CHOP) (3 infusions), and high-dose methotrexate (2 infusions) induced complete tumor regression within 2 months [Figure 1]c, confirmed on AS-OCT [[Figure 1]d, arrowheads].
|Figure 1: At presentation, there was a diffuse salmon-colored iris infiltrate with neovascularization and associated keratic precipitates (a). Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) demonstrated a thick iris infiltrate with irido-corneal touch (b). After treatment, the infiltrate had completely regressed, resulting in resolution of the tumor and posterior synechiae (c). After treatment, AS-OCT revealed a flat iris with no infiltrate (d)|
