Abstract

A review of current biopsy techniques that are used in obtaining specimens from which to make a diagnosis of primary intraocular lymphoma (PIOL) is presented. Methods for obtaining and subsequently testing vitrectomy specimens are discussed. In addition, the yields of external and internal approaches for obtaining chorioretinal tissue, and diagnostic vitrectomies, are reviewed.
