Answer

Answer

Incidence of ocular lymphoma increases with advancing age. [9] Intraocular lymphoma typically affects elderly patients, with reported series having mean ages in the seventh decade of life. The median age at presentation for orbital and adnexal lymphoma is older than 60 years. In a study conducted in the United States, malignant lymphoma was the most common orbital tumor in the elderly age group, accounting for 24% of cases. [19]
