Abstract: Nasal natural killer (NK)/T cell lymphoma is a definitive diagnostic entity in the World Health Organization lymphoma classification.1 In many cases, NK/T cell lymphoma is invariably associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Although ocular involvement is found in less than 10% of patients with systemic lymphoma,2 because of its anatomical proximity, nasal NK/T lymphoma can sometimes complicate uveitis and orbital infiltration.3 We experienced a case of nasal NK/T lymphoma, and the cells collected from the aqueous humour originated from the lymphoma which was infected by EBV.
