Answer

The differential diagnosis for primary central nervous system lymphoma with ocular involvement (PCNSLO) includes reactive lymphoid hyperplasia (RLH), spread of systemic lymphoma, primary uveitis, infection, metastatic tumor, and amelanotic melanoma. All of these (except uveal melanoma) may not uncommonly have central nervous system (CNS) involvement.
