Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of bilateral serous retinal detachments in a patient found to have burkitt lymphoma. Observations: A patient who presented with bilateral serous retinal detachments and “B” symptoms underwent extensive workup and was found to have burkitt lymphoma. Multiagent chemotherapy was initiated with resolution of the serous retinal detachments and visual recovery occurring in parallel to disease remission. Conclusions and Importance: Burkitt lymphoma can present with serous retinal detachments and should be included in the differential for a patient with bilateral serous retinal detachments along with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome.
