Answer

Answer

No sex predilection was noted for ocular lymphomas in some studies. [9] However, in cases of intraocular lymphoma, women are known to be affected up to twice as often as men. Orbital lymphoma was found to have a female preponderance. [4] During 1992–2001, ocular NHL rates per 100,000 person-years for both sexes were highest among Asians/Pacific Islanders, lower in whites, and lower still in blacks. [9]
