Abstract

In a 65-year-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed lesions in both orbits. Histopathologic and immunohistochemical studies of the biopsy specimen established a diagnosis of monocytoid B-cell lymphoma. The patient was treated with radiation therapy, and the lesions disappeared. After 5 years, a lesion in the right conjunctiva was seen again. Histopathologic and immunohistochemical findings revealed the same findings as previously. After chemotherapy, the lesion disappeared. Recurrence of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma in the ocular adnexa may be rare.
