Abstract

Purpose: Recurrence of tumor has devastating morbidity and mortality. Present study was conducted to evaluate recurrence in ocular tumor in oculoplastic cases operated at our centre.
Methods: Prospective longitudinal observational study was conducted from December 2012 to October 2014. Patients of ocular tumors managed by surgical intervention were selected for the study. Biopsies were sent for histopathological examination. Cases were followed to look for recurrences.
Results: 68 patients required surgery for tumors. Sixteen patients were lost during follow up. Out of 39 benign cases only 4 cases (10%) had recurrence. In malignant group 5 cases (38%) had recurrence out of total 13 cases. Refusal to chemotherapy after debulking surgery led to recurrence in two cases.
Conclusion: Patient counseling regarding benefits of follow up is emphasized for early detection and management of recurrences.
