Posttransplantation lymphoproliferative disorder initially seen as iris mass and uveitis

Arch Ophthalmol. 2001 May;119(5):768-70. doi: 10.1001/archopht.119.5.768.


Primary ocular posttransplantation lymphoproliferative disorder is rare. Epstein-Barr virus is implicated as the cause as a result of systemic immunosuppression after transplant surgery. We studied a patient who developed ocular posttransplantation lymphoproliferative disorder after orthotopic liver transplantation. Slitlamp and light microscopic photographs confirmed the diagnosis.
