    Hyper-reflective subretinal infiltrates visible on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) could help diagnose primary vitreoretinal lymphoma (PVRL), researchers believe. The finding could lead to earlier diagnosis of the rare disease; wrote Dr Robert J. Barry from the University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK, and colleagues in the British Journal of Ophthalmology . “It is hoped that increased awareness of characteristic OCT findings in PVRL may improve patient outcomes in this life-limiting disease,” they said.
