Radiation Treatment of Primary Orbital Lymphoid Tumors : Case Report
Hyun Suk Suh
Department of Radiation Therapy, Inje Medical College, Korea.
ABSTRACT
Primary lymphoid tumors of orbit are rare. Sometimes they pose difficulty in differentiating malignant non-odgkin's lymphoma of the orbit from benign lymphoid hyperplasia or pseudotumor of the orbit by growth characteristics and histologic examination of a biopsy specimen. Consequently, systemic work-p for staging of the disease before the initiation of treatment is essential. All lymphoid tumors of the orbit are radiosensitive and the response to radiotherapy is rapid and complete. Radiation dose for permanent control varies from 2,400 to 4,500rads in 2.5~4 weeks depending on extent and location of the disease. A case of localized lymphoma of the orbit was treated with radiotherapy. For the following 15 months, the patient was clinically free of disease without any evidence of side effects of radiation treatment.
