abstract

  • Radiation retinopathy is a well-known complication of irradiation for diseases of the globe, orbit, or neighboring tissues but is rare after whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT), even though the treatment port includes the posterior retina. We describe five patients with long-term primary CNS lymphoma who were diagnosed with retinopathy several years after treatment with chemotherapy and WBRT.
