IOSR Journal of Dental and Medical Sciences
We carried out the study to assess the incidence of eyelid neoplasms with respect to age, sex, location and histopathological type. We done a retrospective study and studied 78 cases of eye lid tumours from aug. 2014 to dec.2016, through histopathological confirmation. A total of 130 cases of ocular neoplasms were seen, among which eyelid tumours accounted the maximum with 78 cases (60%). The most common age group affected was between 51-60 yrs (23.25%). Benign tumours accounted for 42(53.8%)
... ses and malignant tumours were encounted in 36(46.1%) cases. Among the benign tumours capillary hemangioma was the commonest tumour with 13 cases. Sebaseous cell carcinoma was commonest malignant tumour seen in 16(44.4%) cases followed by basal cell carcinoma 11 cases(30.5%) and squamous cell carcinoma in 7(19.4%) cases. Few rare tumours like mucinous eccrine carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma with angiosarcoma were also seen. Benign and malignant tumours were seen almost equally with sebaceous cell carcinoma been the most common malignant tumour similar to that seen various studies conducted in India, though basal cell carcinoma is the most common malignant eyelid tumour worldwide. This variation might be due to geographical and environmental factors.
