Abstract

We report the case of a 33-year-old HIV-seropositive male who had a large cell Epstein-Barr virus-associated non-Hodgkin's orbital lymphoma. A thorough medical examination enabled us to find on thoracic CT-scan a mediastinal lymph node involvement as large as 18 cm in diameter. The regression of the tumor was dramatic under chemotherapy with complete disappearance of the tumor and no recurrence was found after more than 21 months follow-up. We discuss the differential diagnosis with orbital infection.
