    Orbital and ocular adnexal lymphomas are rare and represent around 1-2% of lymphomas and about 8% of the extranodal lymphomas. However, these entities represent the majority of orbital malignancies. Lymphomas of the ocular adnexal region are primary or secondary lymphomas, and the majority of...

    Aims Progressive transformation of germinal centres (PTGC) is a reactive process of undetermined aetiology. Although usually seen as nodal disease, it can occur at extra-nodal sites, such as oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract and skin. To determine if PTGC occurs in the orbit, we reviewed cases...

    The occurrence of follicular bronchiolitis (FB), lymphoid hyperplasia of the bronchus-associated lymphoid tissue, is reported in association with several systemic rheumatic diseases. However, the occurrence of FB in patients with giant cell arteritis (GCA) is not described. A 64-year-old man...

    Malignant lymphomas and reactive lymphoid hyperplasia (RLH) in the ocular adnexa are sometimes difficult to differentiate morphologically and have often been categorized together as a lymphoproliferative disorder. Immunogenotypic characters of these diseases have not yet been well clarified....
