Mentions: A 53-year-old male presented with a painless, hard, palpable mass around the left lower lid with 4 months duration. On examination, bilateral best corrected visual acuity was 20/20. Under slit lamp examination, mild chemosis was seen on the left bulbar conjunctiva. There was mild eye movement limitation of the lateral downward gaze of the left eye. Hertel exophthalmometric measurements were 19 mm oculus dexter and 21 mm oculus sinister [Fig. 1]. During the visit, the patient did not complain of diplopia but described occasional episodes of double vision in the recent past. His medical history was otherwise unremarkable. Computed tomography (CT) scan revealed well enhancing, lobular hyperdense mass in left intraconal space [Fig. 2]. With a high clinical and imaging suspicion of lymphoma, an excisional biopsy was performed.
