Abstract

Malignant lymphoma is mainly found in lymphnodes but extralymphatic organs may be rarely involved. Malignant lymphoma of the orbit is relatively rare representing less than 1% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. All lymphoid tumors of the orbit are radiosensitive and are mainly treated wiht curative intent by irradiation. We report a case of orbital malignant lymphoma in a 41-year-old male patient. He received radiation therapy and subsequent enucleation and till now is clinically free of the disease.
