Abstract. A 73-year-old male was diagnosed with anterior uveitis after a piece of mud hit his left eye. Anti-inflammatory or antifungal agents were futile. He was referred to us 5 weeks after the incident. His left eye had visual acuity of 0.4 and showed rubeosis iridis with keratic precipiatates. The fundus appeared normal. Biopsy of aqueous humor was performed twice but gave unequivocal findings. He then developed left hemiparesthesia and hemiparesis. Findings by radioisotopes were suggestive of infiltration of malignant tumors into the central nervous system. Biopsy of the iris was performed 5 weeks after his initial visit, leading to the diagnosis of diffuse macrocellular B-cell malignant lymphoma. This case illustrates that malignant lymphoma may show unilateral uveitis with marked iris infiltration as its initial manifestation.
