4 Ophthalmic Pathology and Intraocular Tumors
Part I: Ophthalmic Pathology
Chapter 14: Orbit and Lacrimal Drainage System
Nonspecific orbital inflammation is a heterogeneous group of noninfectious inflammatory processes that can affect any part of the orbit.
Lymphoproliferative lesions are among the more common infiltrative processes in the orbit and can occur within the lacrimal gland or elsewhere in the orbit.
Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common orbital malignant tumor in children. When this neoplasm is suspected, urgent action is required in order to establish a diagnosis and prevent loss of orbital and ocular function.
