Intraocular lymphoma or infection? subretinal aspirate clinc
The present case has been reported in the journal Case Reports in Ophthalmological Medicine.

A 54-year-old man presented with bilateral anterior uveitis. He initially responded to topical steroids and dilating agents. Subsequently he developed bilateral panuveitis and cataract with poor response to treatment. Detailed workup had been done to rule out infectious etiology.

A suspicion of lymphoma was considered and vitreous biopsy sample was taken from one eye, which was inconclusive. Then, to help with definitive diagnosis vitreous sample, subretinal aspirate and retinal biopsy were taken. Subretinal aspirate revealed Aspergillus niger. Treatment was initiated accordingly.

Major takeaway:-
Subretinal aspirate and retinal biopsy can help with diagnosis of unusual clinical panuveitis like presentation.
