4 Ophthalmic Pathology and Intraocular Tumors
Part I: Ophthalmic Pathology
Chapter 5: Conjunctiva
Virtually any neoplasm that can occur in the orbit and eyelid skin can occur, although less frequently, in the conjunctiva, including sebaceous, neural, muscular, vascular, and fibrous tumors. Metastasis of lesions to the conjunctiva is rare. Orbital neoplasms are discussed in Chapter 14. See also BCSC Section 8, External Disease and Cornea, and Section 7, Oculofacial Plastic and Orbital Surgery.
