BackgroundTo present a case of conjunctival lymphoma in a young woman complicated by pregnancy.

Case presentationA 38-year-old previously healthy woman presented with a 2-year history of progressive right blepharoptosis. Giant papillomatous sessile masses were identified in the upper and lower fornix bilaterally and involved the tarsus of the right upper lid. The remaining ophthalmic examination was unremarkable. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry showed mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue MALT lymphoma with immunoglobulin kappa monotype. Further workup showed no evidence of systemic lymphoma or orbital involvement.

ConclusionsPartial regrowth of conjunctival lymphoma occurred 6 months after excision and the MALT lymphoma remained indolent during the course of her pregnancy without radiotherapy.
