Orbital Lymphoma: Results of Radiation Therapy

77



ABSTRACT

Orbital lymphoma is a rare presentation of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Treatment with radiotherapy is well-established. Twenty cases of orbital lymphoma treated at the Singapore General Hospital with radiation therapy were reviewed. All patients had improvement of their initial presenting symptoms and complete remission after radiation. Long-term local control was achieved in 17 of 20 (85%) of the treated orbits.


Orbital lymphoma is a rare presentation of extranodal non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, accounting for less than 1% of the total. The role of radiotherapy in its management is well-established.
