Two cases are reported in which pars plana vitrectomy was employed to restore vision and confirm the diagnosis of “primary” intraocular reticulum cell sarcoma. Cytologic study of material removed from the vitreous cavity confirmed the clinical diagnosis. The clinical, histologic, and cytologic features of intraocular reticulum cell sarcoma are reviewed.
