Purpose: To describe an atypical case of primary intraocular lymphoma (PIOL) with rapid progression leading to vision loss and death. Methods: A 71-year-old woman with a history of PIOL presented with a sudden decline in vision. MRI, CSF cytology, and ocular examination 2 months prior were unremarkable. Results: Repeat MRI of the brain and orbits at this time revealed a 0.8×2.4-cm lesion of the left choroid plexus. LP revealed rare atypical B cells. The patient rapidly deteriorated and died a month later. Conclusion: Recognition of the potential for rapid progression and mortality in patients with PIOL is essential.
