    Ocular adnexal lymphoma (OAL) is a rare tumor with an incidence of 0.2 per 1,00,000 individuals. However, it constitutes the most common orbital tumor especially in older population with an incidence ranging from 11% to 24%. OAL can involve conjunctiva, orbital soft tissues, eyelid, or adnexal structures such as lacrimal gland and lacrimal drainage system. The most common primary OAL is low-grade malignant extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (EMZL) of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type. Though various classification and staging systems have been proposed for OAL, currently, American joint committee on cancer (AJCC) TNM (tumor node metastasis) staging is most commonly used. Most commonly, conjunctival lymphoma typically presents as ‘salmon-colored patch’ and orbital lymphoma presents as proptosis, which on imaging shows characteristic appearance of molding a..
