Intraocular lymphoma is a rare disease but its oncologic nature makes it important to diagnose. However, the diagnosis is often delayed because of a specific clinical presentation usually as a masquerade syndrome of posterior chronic uveitis. Moreover, to confirm diagnosis, ocular sample for histological proof is mandatory but the sensitivity of this analysis remains low. This review aims to describe the main clinical characteristics and diagnosis tools for primary vitreoretinal and uveal lymphomas in order to improve early recognition of these pathologies in daily practice. We discuss treatment outlines and point out to the new perspectives of treatment and management challenges.
