Abstract: Objectives: We investigated the results of radiotherapy for mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the ocular adnexa. Methods: Twenty-one patients with MALT lymphoma of the ocular adnexa were treated with radiotherapy alone at a dose ranging from 30 to 54Gy. The disease arose from the conjunctiva in 15 patients (9 with bilateral involvement), and from the retrobulbar space in 6 patients (1 with bilateral involvement). Results: All patients with MALT lymphoma achieved a CR or unconfirmed CR (CRu). The 5-and 10-year overall survival rates of all patients with MALT lymphoma were 100% and 90%, respectively. The 5-and 10-year cause-specific survival rates were 100% and 100%, respectively. In all patients with delayed toxicity, the radiation dose was more than 40Gy. Conclusions: Excellent local control and survival can be achieved for patients with MALT lymphoma of the ocular adnexa using radiotherapy alone.
