Clinical Studies

The authors present 2 female patients of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) involving the lacrimal gland. The patients include a 75-year-old female and a 59-year-old female. Both patients presented with palpable upper eyelid masses. The first patient was previously diagnosed with gastric and ileocecal MCLs and underwent chemotherapy with remission. The second patient had distant lesions in the muscular limbs that were confirmed to be MCL after the diagnosis of lacrimal gland MCL. Both patients underwent chemotherapy with complete remission.
