Case Report

Orbito - Blepheral Lymphoma

Khalid Iqbal Talpur, Nazir Ashraf Laghari..


Primary orbital and adnexal lymphomas are usually of Non-Hodgkin`s variety and almost exclusively occur in adults with bimodal peaks in the 30`s and 60`s. A rare case is being reported of orbito - blepheral lymphoma in a four year old girl. On literature search, this is the youngest case of such an entity. The route of extension was also unusual. The mass started from the posterior orbital cavity passing through the space between eye ball and superior orbital margin and extended into the upper eyelid. Excision biopsy was performed followed by chemotherapy. The child has been followed up for one year and is free of recurrence. A long term follow up has been planned.

Key words: Lymphoma, Orbito - Blepheral Biopsy, Chemotherapy
