Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 49-year-old woman with periocular lymphoma. It states that the woman had a history of persistent lymphocytosis nine years before the diagnosis of the lymphoma. It tells that yellowish discoloration of skin lesions around the eyes was due to the presence of hemosiderin-laden macrophages. Moreover, it asserts that radiotherapy is the sole treatment method applicable for periocular lymphomas, however, chemotherapy should be applied in worse cases.
