Vitreoretinal Lymphoma Registry

Physician Call to Action!!!  

THE VITREORETINAL LYMPHOMA DATABASE

There exists almost no evidence-based, therefore statistically significant information concerning vitreoretinal lymphoma. This information is needed to help determine the best local and systemic treatment strategies. In that vitreoretinal lymphoma is often associated with central nervous system lymphoma, this information is needed to save both vision and life.

THE EYE CANCER FOUNDATION in collaboration with PRINCESSS MARGARET CANCER CENTER are pleased to announce that the Ophthalmic Oncology Task Force has created an International Vitreoretinal Lymphoma Tumor Registry. 

The primary goal of this registry is to collect 2500 cases of this rare disease. Each participating center must be able to enroll at least 50 cases diagnosed between the years 2000 to 2015.

All patient information will be de-identified as to conform to all privacy standards. All data mining related publications will include two authors from each center. Though there will be a group authorship as primary, each center will be listed in order, according to the number of patients entered into the database.

If you are a retinal specialist, ophthalmic oncologist or hematologist oncologist interested in participation, please contact Paul T. Finger, MD at pfinger@eyecancer.com.
