Purpose: To describe a patient with a sebaceous adenoma of the bulbar conjunctiva, a distinctly unusual site for this tumor, associated with glioblastoma multiforme and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Methods: A 69-year-old woman presented with a red nodule on the temporal bulbar conjunctiva. The mass was excised.
Results: Histopathologic examination of the tumor showed a sebaceous adenoma. Within 3 months, she was discovered to have a temporoparietal glioblastoma multiforme and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The patient died 5 months after the ocular diagnosis because of cardiovascular complications.
Conclusions: Sebaceous adenoma is an exceedingly rare tumor of the bulbar conjunctiva and may be associated with several systemic malignancies.
