Abstract

Purpose : To report the relationship between ocular adnexal lymphoma and Chlamydia psittaci infection. Material and Method : DNA was extracted from 10 frozen specimens of ocular adnexal lymphoma. An attempt was made to detect DNA of Chlamydia psittaci in the extracted DNA. Doxycyclin was given perorally to another series of 7 patients with active or untreated ocular adnexal lymphoma. They were followed up for 16 to 20 months. Results : DNA of Chlamydia psittaci was not detected in the DNA extracted from frozen specimens of ocular adnexal lymphoma. The lymphoma showed slight remission in 2 out of 7 patients after receiving doxycyclin. Conclusion : DNA of Chlamydia psittaci was not detected in frozen specimens of ocular adnexal lymphoma.
