A 45-year-old man presented with history of painless, slow-growing mass in the medial aspect of right lower eyelid over 2 years. On examination, the mass was noted to be firm, mobile, and nontender. On excision biopsy, histopathologic and immunohistochemistry report was consistent with low-grade non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma. He was then treated with local radiotherapy. Using 6 MeV electrons, a dose of 24 Gy was delivered in 12 cycles over a period of 2 weeks to the right lower lid, with a centimeter bolus. Though non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the ocular adnexa is rare, it should be considered in differential diagnosis, as they have the potential for rapid systemic involvement and may need treatment that is different from that of other common diseases at the same site.
