4 Ophthalmic Pathology and Intraocular Tumors
Part I: Ophthalmic Pathology
Chapter 13: Eyelids
The eyelid contains a number of distinct structures that can give rise to various types of pathologic conditions.
Benign neoplasms of the eyelid are common in both children and adults.
Malignant eyelid neoplasms increase in incidence with age. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common of these neoplasms.
Sebaceous carcinoma frequently propagates along the eyelids and ocular surface via pagetoid and in situ spread.
Eyelid nevi are common, and they evolve and proliferate with age.
