Answer

Answer

Metastatic systemic lymphoma, like other metastatic ocular tumors, is usually confined to the uvea—in particular, the choroid. Compared with PCNSLO, metastatic systemic lymphomas are much less prevalent, have a better prognosis, and are less likely to create a diagnostic dilemma. [25]
