Abstract Ocular masquerade syndrome was diagnosted in two patients with chronic uveitis. The patients presented non-Hodgkin's lymphoma as the final diagnosis two forms of intraocular retinal pigment epithelium involvement was seen. One case was flecks of the retinal pigment epithelium and another case was a solid retinal pigment epithelium detachment. These unusual presentations of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is an alert to all involved in lymphoma care.

Os autores apresentam dois casos de pacientes com linfoma não-Hodgkin, diagnosticados inicialmente como uveite crônica de etiologia não determinada. Os exames posteriores a partir da presença de outros sinais e sintomas demonstraram a presença de linfoma não-Hodgkin nestes pacientes. Um dos pacientes apresentava flecks ao nível do epitélio pigmentar da retina e o outro paciente apresentava descolamento sólido do epitélio pigmentar da retina. Estas formas de envolvimento do epitélio pigmentar da retina não são usuais em linfoma não-Hodgkin.
