Iris lymphomas are rare malignant neoplasms arising either as primary tumors in the iris or as secondary tumors involving the iris. We summarize previously published data and make recommendations for work-up strategies for cases of suspected iris lymphoma. Our objective is to provide a structured overview of the typical clinical symptoms and signs, the pathologic, ophthalmic, as well as hematologic work-up for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of iris lymphomas and offer a flowchart on how to diagnose and treat these tumors.
