TO STUDY THE HISTOPATHOLOGICAL PROFILE OF BENIGN AND MALIGNANT LESIONS OF THE EYELIDS
Introduction:Tumours of the eyelid are by far the most commonly reported tumorous lesion in ophthalmological clinics and are most amenable to surgical removal. In routine practice, majority of the eyelid tumors are easily diagnosed from a clinical point of view and are not routinely subjected to histopathology for a confirmed definitive diagnosis. The literature is sparse upon frequency of different eyelid lesions across the world. Aims: To study the histopathological profile of various benign and malignant tumors and tumor like lesions of the eyelids in hospital based population of Jammu region. Methodology: The present study was carried out in Post Graduate Department of Pathology, Government Medical College, Jammu over a period of five years with effect from November 1st to October 31st 2015. Observations:Our study included 80 eyelid lesions and were analysed as per performa annexed. During one year period from 1st November 2014 to 31st October 2015, 38033 patients attended Ophthalmology Department as per records. 68 patients were of benign lesions and 12 patients of malignant lesions. Incidence of benign lesions was 0.17% and incidence of malignant lesions was 0.03% in hospital based population of Jammu region. Conclusion: In conclusion, the study confirms that benign tumors predominant over malignant ones. The overlapping presentations of benign and malignant lesions stresses the importance of histopathological diagnosis to increase the accuracy.This will help in planning proper treatment of these lesions especially the malignant ones, requiring less extensive surgeries and reconstruction.
