CALZADILLA RODRIGUEZ, Karina et al. Clinical and histopathological characterization of ocular adnexa tumors. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.2, pp.197-202. ISSN 0864-2176.

Objective: to describe the clinical and histopathological signs of ocular adnexa tumors detected in the 2009-2010 period. Methods: retrospective, longitudinal, descriptive and observational study of 166 patients presenting with some adnexa tumors, who were chosen at the oculoplasty service located in Holguin province. Results: the 41 to 50 years-old group accounted for 37,35 %. The most affected patients were females with 53,61 %. The greatest amount of injures was found in the eyelids of 114 individuals; the mostly identified histological type was nevus which represented 25,90 % of cases, followed by basal carcinoma with 18,07 %. An agreement of 83,13 % between the clinical and the histopathological diagnosis was reached. Conclusions: the tumor lesions of adnexa found in the studied patients commonly occur in females at risky ages as of the 40 years when the eyelids are more sensitive. Nevus and basocelular carcinoma became health problems due to their predominant frequency, and they were correctly diagnosed by the clinical method.

Keywords : adnexa tumors; histopathology; basocellular carcinoma; nevus.
