Abstract

Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas are malignant tumors whose aggressiveness depends on the histological type of the tumor. The orbital localization may be isolated or associated with a systemic lymphoma.

The clinical polymorphism of malignant lymphomas is extreme, posing diagnostic problems and delaying therapeutic management, which is why anatomopathological examination of a tissue biopsy is the only key to diagnosis.

We report the case of a patient who presented with exophthalmos revealing a lymphoma.

Keywords: Exophthalmos, non-hodgkin's lymphoma, malignant proliferations
