Figure 1.

A 51-year-old woman with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma presented with 2 days of fluctuating vision in her left eye; mild disc edema was seen. Four days later, her visual acuity worsened to hand movements. Photograph by Beth Selkirk, COA.

Figure 2.

An elevated mass on the surface of the left optic nerve head was seen protruding into the patient's vitreous. Also visible were diffuse retinal vein engorgement, scattered retinal hemorrhages, and box-carring of the retinal arterioles. A diagnosis of direct lymphomatous infiltration of the optic nerve producing simultaneous central retinal venous and arterial occlusions was made. Photograph by Beth Selkirk, COA.
