Abstract PURPOSE: To report a case of bilateral primary intraocular lymphoma. CASE REPORT: A 33-year-old man presented with bilateral blurred vision since two years ago. Examination revealed large keratic precipitates, anterior chamber reaction, posterior subcapsular cataracts, and vitreous infiltration. After a short trial of topical and periocular steroids, diagnostic 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy was performed and cytologic evaluation of the aspirate confirmed a diagnosis of intraocular lymphoma. The patient was subsequently managed with intravitreal methotrexate in both eyes and responded favorably. Central nervous system workup for lymphoma was negative. CONCLUSION: Primary intraocular lymphoma should be considered in young adults suffering from chronic recalcitrant panuveitis.
