Peribulbar Oncocytoma: High-Frequency Ultrasound With Histopathologic Correlation

Madhavi Kurli et al. Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging. .

Abstract

The clinical, ultrasonographic, and histopathologic characteristics of an oncocytoma of the conjunctiva are described. A 49-year-old woman presented with a red-orange lesion adjacent to the caruncle in her left eye. A clinical examination including high-frequency ultrasound was performed prior to excisional biopsy of her tumor. High-frequency ultrasound demonstrated an epibulbar tumor with low internal reflectivity and a cystic component. There was no involvement of the underlying sclera. Multiple hypoechoic components of the tumor stroma were correlated to multiple cystic glandular structures on histopathologic evaluation. The excised tumor was diagnosed to be an oncocytoma.
