Abstract

VIANNA, Raul N.G. et al. Flecked retina in systemic large-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: case report. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2007, vol.70, n.6, pp. 1043-1045. ISSN 0004-2749.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-27492007000600032.

We report on a patient with a past medical history of successfully treated systemic large-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (SNHL), who presented with multifocal yellowish retinal infiltrates (flecked retina) involving the post-equatorial retina of one eye. Fluorescein angiography revealed that the retinal infiltrates were hypofluorescent throughout the examination. The correct diagnosis of this ocular picture was important because the retinal lesions indicated central nervous system recurrence of systemic large-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
