Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the clinical and pathological features of ocular adnexal lymphoma (OAL) and the treatment results in an eye care service center in Turkey. Materials and Methods: The data sets of the patients diagnosed with OAL acquired between January 2008 and January 2016 were collected and analyzed. Results: Fifteen patients were included in our study. The mean age was 55.80 ± 17.85 years. The age range was 7–85 years. Most of the lesions originated from orbital tissue, and histopathological and immunohistochemistry examinations of the lesions were consistent with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 14 patients and Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1 patient. The most common subtype of OAL, accounting for 40% of cases, is extranodular marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type. Conclusion: Most of our patients' histopathological and immunohistochemistry examinations are non-Hodgkin's type and also involve the orbits. Ocular adnexal lymphomatosis is not a rare disorder and could be treated if there is no systemic involvement at first diagnosis.
