Primary vitreoretinal lymphoma (PVRL) is a rare type of lymphoma wherein the lesions are limited to the eyes. PVRL is difficult to diagnose because of the challenges related to obtaining sufficient samples for biopsy. Moreover, PVRL has poor outcomes and often leads to the development of central nervous system (CNS) lesions during its course. Two studies recently reported that approximately 70%‐80% of patients with vitreoretinal lymphoma have MYD88L265P , which is frequently mutated in primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL). PCNSL is closely associated with PVRL. The mutation of CD79BY196 has been also frequently detected in PCNSL. Thus, we examined the mutation in PVRL to clarify its diagnostic and prognostic potential.
