Orbital lymphomas represent 1% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Spontaneous bowel lymphoma perforation is rare and mostly associated with aggressive behavior. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is the most common lymphoma associated with intestinal perforation. We present a case report of a 56 years old patient who presented to our Oculoplastics department with a history of rapidly progressive proptosis and severe visual loss. After orbital lymphoma suspicion, a biopsy was conducted. During the post-operative period, the patient began with acute abdomen symptoms that required exploratory laparotomy. Multiple intestinal perforations were found through the surgery. Unfortunately, our patient evolved torpidly, presenting as well SARS-COVID 19 infection, perishing in the next days. In conclusion, even though a primary orbital lymphoma is suspected, we recommend deliberate systemic evaluation at the time of diagnosis and remembering COVID pandemic can worsen any hospitalized patient's prognosis.
