A 73-year-old lady presented with complicated cataract, white tumor hypopyon, and an elevated, nonpigmented mass at the root of iris. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed ciliary body involvement suspicious of atypical melanoma. Patient underwent enucleation. Histopathology with immunohistochemistry (IHC) markers clinched the diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of ciliary body, with positive lymphoma markers CD20, CD3, BCL2, and PAX5 and negative melanoma markers HMB45 and S100. Primary lymphoma of ciliary body, especially the DLBCL type, is rare. Our report shows that primary lymphoma of ciliary body may be considered as a differential in cases with atypical features. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry are valuable tools in diagnosing challenging cases.
