Uveodermatologic lymphoma

From Dog

Uveodermatologic lymphoma are a variant ocular and adnexal lymphoma observed rarely in dogs.

Two related Portuguese Water Dogs have been reported, where both presented with anterior uveitis, iridal masses, and secondary glaucoma.

Histopathology and immunohistochemistry revealed a nonepitheliotropic lymphoma[1] of T-cell on one dog and B-cell in the other.

A differential diagnosis would include other causes of anterior uveitis and glaucoma.

An unrelated syndrome known as uveodermatologic syndrome must not be confused with this condition.

Treatment required enucleation.
