eye its adnexa, in our institute during June 2013 to October 2015.
All biopsies were embedded completely after thorough gross examination, resected specimens were noted
for size, shape, consistency approximate section were taken. The enucleated eyeballs are sectioned
according to stard protocols.
Results: In the present study, 80 cases of tumours and tumour like lesions in the eye its adnexa was carried.
Out of these, eye lid was affected in 43 cases (53.75%), conjunctival cornea in16 cases (20%), intraocular
in 17 cases (21.25%) orbit in 4 cases (05%).
Among 80 cases maximum 44 cases (55%) were of malignant tumours followed by tumour like lesions 24
cases (30%) 12 cases (15%) of benign tumours.
