Purpose: To describe two cases of vitreous metastases of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (PCBCL). Methods: Observational case series. Results: A 73-year-old man and an 81-year-old woman, both with a history of PCBCL, diffuse large cell type, presented with decreased visual acuity due to vitritis. Both patients underwent vitreous biopsy that demonstrated B-cell lymphoma, large cell type, and confirmed metastases of cutaneous B-cell lymphoma to the vitreous. Conclusion: PCBCL, diffuse large cell type, is a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that can metastasize to the vitreous without visible chorioretinal involvement.
