A 67-year-old woman with chronic bilateral intraocular inflammation associated with vitreous cells and subretinal pigment epithelium (RPE) infiltrates (A–B) underwent a chorioretinal biopsy in the left eye after three negative vitreous biopsies. Sub-RPE deposits on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (C) corresponded to collections of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma cells on histopathogy (D–E) and immunohistochemistry (F–H).
