Lymphoma originating in mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue (MALToma) is characterized by small B-cell lymphocytes of low-grade malignancy. They have salmon-colored multiple conjunctival masses and the bilateral occurrences are relatively rare. We evaluated a 32 year-old man with bilateral conjunctival mass lesions who was referred to our department with the diagnosis of allergic conjuctivitis. Histologic and immunocytochemical examination of the conjunctival biopsy revealed mucosal associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. The patients was successfully treated with low-dose local radiotherapy.
