Abstract  We report a case of young female with subconjunctival mass that was reported to be inflammatory on radiological imaging but did not respond to local and systemic steroids given initially. So after being reviewed by radiology, medicine and hematology an excision biopsy was planned which revealed non hodgkins lymphoma on histopathological examination. She was referred to oncology department where she was successfully managed by radiotherapy without any recurrence on follow up. Here we highlight the diagnostic challenge to an ophthalmologist in a case of lymphoma and the need of multidisciplinary approach for successful management of such cases.

Keywords: Subconjunctival mass, histopathology, lymphoma, radiotherapy.
